This course is designed to provide the practicing real estate appraiser with an understanding of the opportunities available in litigation support assignments. Additionally, it will supply the background for the appraiser to provide a work product and testimony necessary to assist the Trier of Fact in a civil case to reach a just and equitable decision. The student will be informed about the structure of a civil trial, the rules of evidence, and USPAP requirements, and will gain an understanding of the mechanics of a civil trial.
