You learned the basics of business law back in law school. Many years and many clients later, you have to admit—a quick reminder of those “nuts and bolts” principles would be a big help to your thriving practice. It’s not that you don’t know the law, it’s just that you’ve moved beyond the core issues, and everyone can benefit from a “refresher” every now and then.
Designed to reinforce the foundation on which you have built your practice, we have developed a series of seminars—one every three months—that will “refresh” your memory and understanding of the fundamentals that you learned when you were a student in law school. These programs are invaluable to both the seasoned practitioner and to the new graduate seeking reinforcement of principles learned in the classroom.
The first in this series, Agency Law and Practice, focuses on the rights and duties between a principal and an agent, or in other words, the relationship between two parties when one person has legal authority to act for another. Bolster your business law practice and join us for this half-day “refresher” that will provide a steadfast framework for understanding agency law issues
Topics will include:
- The relationship between an agent and principal
- Principal’s responsibilities
- Kinds of agencies
- The principal and agent as one
- Agent’s authority and responsibilities
- Liabilities of principals for acts of agents
- Third party considerations
- Termination of agency relationship
