Series On Real Estate Litigation Presented By DC Bar

Monday, September 1, 2008 - 00:00

A two-part series, Issues You Need to Consider in Litigating and Trying Real Estate Cases, will be hosted by the Washington D.C. Bar Association on Wednesday, September 10 and Wednesday, September 17. On both days the course will begin at 6 p.m. and conclude at 9:15 p.m.

Part I of the series will cover those issues posed by cases involving competing claims of title, specific performance, adverse possession, rights of first refusal, boundary disputes, easements, restrictive covenants, and other factually intricate real property lawsuits. Part II will further address discovery needs and strategies, local procedures governing pretrial conferences and other pretrial procedures, trial techniques and specific strategies for conveying complicated law and facts to a court or jury.

Examples from actual real estate trials will be discussed and analyzed, as well as guidance relating to what happens after the verdict.

Stephen Hessler, Hessler & Associates and Vernon Johnson, Nixon Peabody LLP, will be the series faculty.
