Living in close proximity to one another brings out the best and the worst in all of us. When proximity means sharing the same patch of dirt or foundation, issues are bound to arise.

  • Can I trim my neighbor’s tree?
  • Do I have an easement on my neighbor’s property?
  • How can I get my neighbor to fix his deteriorating fence?
  • What can I do about my neighbor’s barking dog?

As an attorney, you have been asked these questions many times from family, friends, and clients. You even may have encountered these questions yourself when dealing with a neighbor. This course will teach you how to answer these and other related questions. Our faculty will explore the disputes that commonly arise between neighbors and suggest ways to gain resolution.

Learn what your client’s rights are and how alternative dispute resolution might save you and your client from a visit to the courthouse. “Neighbor law” is diffuse; it integrates a variety of types of law from real estate to torts and often requires a great deal of research to answer one question. This seminar will provide a great overview of practical advice on how to deal with neighbor issues.

Whether you are a residential or commercial real estate lawyer, municipal lawyer, general practitioner, in-house counsel, or the lawyer who occasionally fields questions about such issues from friends and family, this program will benefit you.
