Upcoming bar CLE schedule
1. January 21, CLE presented by Larry Freedman entitled “A Winning Case.” 1 general credit, preapproved by the WSBA.
Trial tactics and strategy start with your theory of the case, how to create it and how to use it throughout, before and during the trial. The elements of a well drafted theory of the case and the presentation of the “story” are critical to a winning case. How the attorney presents him or herself and the client make the difference. If the case is totally one way, it should be resolved without trial. It is the marginal cases that should go to trial. That is where a well-executed theory of the case, well presented by an attorney who impresses the jury and who the jury likes, will make the difference. This course will discuss how that is done.
2. February 4, social meeting.
3. February 18, CLE presented by Rob Onnen entitled “Tax consequences of selling real estate in a down market.” 1 general credit, preapproved by the WSBA.
Mr. Onnen will discuss both tax-free and tax-deferred opportunities of selling all types of real estate, including land, primary residences, second homes, and real estate used in a business or held as an investment. He will also discuss adverse condemnations under IRC Section 1033.
