NFPA Announces New CLE for January

NFPA will offer the following online seminars in January:

Ø PACE Review Course

Ø Tax Law

In a world where there are only two sure things - death and taxes - legal professionals should understand at least one of the two. This two-week seminar provides a comprehensive overview by dividing the topic into several areas. The first area will cover the legal authority - code and judicial - of the tax law. The seminar will also review the concept of income for tax purposes. The third area will deal with deductions, credits, and tax computations for individuals. Lastly, the seminar will survey income tax on corporations and pass-through entities, plus transfer taxes (estates and gifts) and employment taxes. With no pre-requisites, this seminar will be an excellent introduction for paralegals across all sub-specialties to understand the function, structure, and consequence of taxes.

Ø Legal Analysis

This seminar is designed to provide students with an opportunity to hone their skills in legal analysis. We will focus specifically on the IRAC method of organizing a legal issue and exploring each aspect of that method: Issue, Rule, Analysis, and Conclusion.

The seminar provides a very focused look at each of the components of the IRAC method of organizing legal analysis. The discussion questions and exercises provide students the opportunity to first discuss each component, and then practice what has been covered in the discussion. One fact pattern will be used throughout the assignments so that students can build on each topic. We will review each of the components of the IRAC process: Issue, Rule, Application, and Conclusion.

Registration is available on the NFPA website under CLE.
