Course Description

This program was recorded on October 17, 2019

The exponential expansion of confusing firearm laws is potentially leading to our clients becoming “prohibited persons” and “criminals” for conduct they never anticipated being illegal. Whether practicing family law, estate planning, administrative, or civil rights law, these changes in firearm laws can impact your practice and the advice you provide your clients. This course will cover how firearm laws impact these and other areas of law and help prepare you to adequately advise your clients who own or ever plan to own a firearm, as well as the limited remedies available for those who are prohibited from owning firearms.
