WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Earn CLE credit and learn the best ways to use, and defend against, contempt proceedings in Alabama.



Contempt proceedings have become more complicated recently. An understanding of Alabama Rule of Civil Procedure 70A and relevant case law is essential if you're going to make effective use of this enforcement tool -- or defend against it. 

Join your colleagues for a quick CLE update on the latest developments in contempt proceedings in both civil and criminal cases. Your presenter, a seasoned Alabama attorney, will look at the contempt issue from both sides, sharing tips on how to pursue as well as defend contempt proceedings. 

In addition to practical, use-them-now tactics, you'll also learn when to NOT request a contempt ruling, based on conflict resolution strategies and the potential for ancillary and unwanted impact. 

Agenda: 

  • Shifting burdens of proof in contempt proceedings 
  • Pitfalls of using the court’s contempt power 
  • Difficulty of appellate review of contempt orders 


Don't miss this chance to learn the latest in contempt proceeding as a case management strategy while earning valuable CLE!
