Collapse Administering an Estate in Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, Simulcasts, Live Webcast)

The process of administering a decedent’s estate involves collecting all assets, locating all creditors, paying all debts, paying all applicable taxes, and then distributing the remaining assets to the persons entitled to inherit under the decedent’s will, or where there is no will, under the laws of intestacy. Our faculty will offer a step-by-step guide on how to achieve this.

    Collapse Mechanics

    Receive a refresher and get the latest updates on the Mechanics’ Lien Law.

     

    The 2007 amendments Pennsylvania’s Mechanics’ Lien Law made dramatic alterations to that law, changing, and in some cases, reversing, the balance of power among owners and claimants. But those amendments were only the beginning. If the 2007 amendments were a revolution, the ten years that followed brought an almost constant evolution of the law. In addition to the four sets of amendments the General Assembly made over that period, faced with a steady stream of mechanics’ lien cases, the courts have contributed significantly to what is a very different looking Mechanics’ Lien Law landscape.

     

    This course provides a framework for attorneys new to mechanics’ liens in Pennsylvania as well as an up-to-the-minute update on recent case law and legislation that will be valuable to even the most experienced practitioners.

    • Find out about the latest developments in the Pennsylvania Contractor and Subcontractor Payment Act
    • Hear the differencing perspectives on the Mechanics’ Lien Law from counsel for claimants, owners and lenders.
    • Learn about some of the ethical considerations that apply in working with mechanics’ liens

     

    Discuss and learn the answers to the following questions:

    • How have the courts been applying the Supreme Court’s 2014 Bricklayers decision, and how should counsel proceed in the face of what sometime appear to be inconsistent approaches by the lower courts?
    • What have we learned in the first months of operation of the State Construction Notices Directory and what legal issues are likely to arise as we move forward?
    • How do you preserve and perfect or defend against a lien claim?
    • When may lien rights still be waived?
    • What are the practical considerations when the Mechanics’ Lien Law and bankruptcy intersect?

    Collapse U.S. Immigration Law Under the Trump Administration (Philadelphia, Simulcasts, Live Webcast)

    The general practitioner has always had to know enough about immigration law to responsibly address client needs and ensure proper representation is provided, particularly because immigration law overlaps with so many other areas, including family, employment and criminal law. With the Trump administration’s very targeted focus on immigration, practitioners need to understand the immigration system in order to properly counsel their clients in an atmosphere of increased work site crackdowns, detention and removal of immigrants and bans on immigrants from certain countries.

     

    Learn about these crucial areas:

    • The immigration vocabulary
    • Worksite compliance- employer liability
    • Undocumented immigrants—civil rights and immigration remedies, including asylum and cancellation of removal
    • Family law issues for “mixed families”: family action plans in the event of ice detention
    • Criminal immigration (crimimm): the new definition of “criminal” in 2017
    • Sanctuary cities-how will the state and federal governments deal with them?
