During this live, 2.5-hour CLE held on Zoom, learn from those at the forefront of the homestead exemption changes. Christina Henry, Henry Sommers, Michael Sperry, and Marc Stern will explain the changes to the statute, talk about application of the exemption, and discuss potential legal issues arising from the amendment.

This CLE is sponsored by Northwest Consumer Law Center. Attendees will earn 1 ethics credit and 1.5 law and legal procedures credits (WSBA approval pending). A Zoom link will be sent to attendees upon registration.
