We previously announced the FDN foreclosure defense seminar series on this website, including topic areas and registration requirements. In view of the literal slew of recent inquiries, we are essentially re-publishing this information at this time.

Each session consists of an entire day of instruction with seven (7) hours of CLE credit available to those whose state Bars accept CLE certification from other mandatory CLE states. The Florida Bar has accredited the entire series of 12 one-hour blocks for 12 CLE hours. However, the one-day sessions cover seven (7) of these in order to provide the most beneficial information for attorneys and paralegals currently involved in foreclosure defense. The entire series was developed to give both overviews and instruction for those who had never done or had only minimal foreclosure defense experience.

Registration is limited, for each session, to fifteen (15) participants who must be either licensed attorneys or paralegals employed by an identified law Firm, and will cover topic and practice areas relating to identification of issues and defenses, MERS, discovery, motion practice, filing and defending dispositve motions, mediation, post-judgment and post-sale challenges, eviction/UD/FED actions, and bankruptcy issues, among others.

The dates for the currently scheduled seminars are: Friday, November 19, 2010; Friday, December 17, 2010; and Friday, January 7, 2011. The cost of each session is $695.00 and includes breakfast, lunch, snacks, beverages, and parking in the building in addition to the notebook with forms for pleadings, discovery, and memoranda of law.

Registration forms which include directions to the site are available by sending an e-mail request to [email protected] or the FDN e-mail address.
