Date: Saturday, November 14, 2015 11:15 AM to 12:15 PM
Venue: Presidents Room / Minnesota State Bar Association  Minneapolis, MN United States  Get Directions
Total Price: $10.00

Deadline to Register: November 12, 2015

Rule 1.1 of Professional Conduct states, “A lawyer shall provide competent representation to a client.” Competent knowledge means basic litigation skills, an understanding of the burden of proof, knowledge of the requirements to obtain a protection order and remedies available to victims under Minnesota statutes and case law.  However a seemly simple protective order case can become very complicated, very quickly.  Understanding the particular statutes, how a protective order interplays with other statutes, remedies available, the consequences of certain outcomes and keeping safety of your client at the forefront are all required to be able to ethically representing petitioners in protective order hearings.

The Family Law Section membership will meet prior to the CLE at 9:30 a.m.
