    Course Description
    This course introduces the basic concepts and strategies needed to engage in litigation valuation. It explores the scope of activities you can expect in a legal action, including assessing the status of a case, developing a USPAP-compliant appraisal without preparing a written report, and understanding legal terminology and jargon. The course addresses how litigation assignments differ from lender assignments and how to market appraisal services to litigation clients. You’ll work in small groups to practice effective deposition and direct testimony techniques and a mock trial with a residential case study gives them the opportunity to experience a realistic courtroom environment in which to polish their skills.

    This course is in the Litigation Professional Development Program. View this list of FAQs, which includes information regarding the courses you’ll need to complete the program successfully.
