Course Summary

Course Details

The use of caveats may raise professional ethics issues as well as legal issues. A recent decision by the State Administrative Tribunal found the lodging of a caveat without there being a caveatable interest to be professional misconduct on the part of the lawyer.  Join us for a refresher on caveats and caveatable interests as the speakers explore the relevance of caveats in family law proceedings including inappropriate use.  The seminar concludes with a panel discussion, including an opportunity for questions.
