  Description  

This two-day* course provides an overview of business opportunities in specialized types of litigation other than eminent domain in which the valuation of real estate is frequently an issue. Examples of topics covered include environmental contamination, ad valorem tax assessments, construction defects, bankruptcies, fraud and misrepresentation cases, income and estate tax disputes, and divorces. Through problem-solving activities, participants will apply new concepts and address how to best handle valuation and reporting issues in a professional legal setting. Participants will gain an understanding of the terminology and concepts involved in litigation valuation services in specialty areas and will learn about the many opportunities available for expanding their practices in litigation valuation.

Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to:
• Understand how to advocate the use of a particular valuation methodology without advocating the position of a particular litigant
• Identify issues related to preparing appraisals for litigation assignments involving bankruptcy, tax appeals, environmental issues, fraud, construction defects, etc.
• Plan and develop effective exhibits and other demonstrative evidence

*Please Note. After June 11th a revised and expanded version of this course will be released. Rather than 2 days, it will be 3 days.

Note: This course is in the Litigation Professional Development Program. For more information, click here.
