Case Studies: An Advanced Course

2:15 PM - 3:30 PM - MEETING SUITE 1D

You be the Judge! This course is designed to be an interactive class session where the audience can think “outside the box” on actual Community Association cases. You will walk through the cases with an attorney, manager and insurance professional. Audience members will judge for themselves the most appropriate resolutions for these disputes. The presenters will provide information on the type of resolutions that are possible,  including mediation and/or arbitration, rather than litigation, as well as suggestions on how to avoid conflict in the first place.
