Boost Your Earning Potential with Two Litigation Courses

Based on the  Appraisal Institute’s  new textbook Applications in Litigation Valuation: A Pragmatist’s Guide, this one-day seminar discusses in detail three of the book’s case studies that provide an overview of litigation strategies to appraisers who are new to litigation work, as well as a reinforcement of litigation skills to more experienced appraisers. Case study topics include the following:  title issues, continuing nuisance, and condemnation.

June 13-14: Litigation Appraising: Specialized Topics and Applications
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. Click here for details and registration.

Note! Both courses are taught by top-rated instructor Vince Dowling, MAI, SRA and there are discounts available if both are taken together.
