Firearm Law Updates and How They Affect Your Practice


CLE credits earned: 2 GENERAL (or 2 LAW & LEGAL for WA state)

Every branch of government has become deeply embroiled in the area of firearm laws, leading to an exponential expansion of confusing and contradictory laws. Our clients can arrest and qualify as “prohibited persons” or “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 you identify some of the new potential issues for clients who own or ever plan to own a firearm. It also addresses some of the limited remedies available for those who are prohibited from owning firearms.

Key topics to be discussed:
