About the Seminar
Practicing law can sometimes be stressful.  And sometimes CLEs can be boring.  But the SC Bar CLE Division has the cure for both!  “The Riskiest CLE for 2019” will give you the opportunity to get three hours of CLE, including that hard-to-find hour of Mental Health, enjoy a great lunch from White Duck Taco, and throw axes!

Yes, that’s right – throw axes!  If you’ve never tried axe throwing, it’s the next “Big Thing!”  So, put together a foursome or sign up as a single, and come ready to compete at Hampton Station’s Craft Axe Throwing!  The winning team will receive a “valuable prize!”

And while you’re limbering up for the axe throwing competition, you’ll get some authoritative guidance on waivers and releases and limitations of liability – just the thing to know before throwing axes!

So, what will you learn?

All activities have some form of risk and just because someone is injured does not mean that there is legal liability. Today, we are seeing businesses increasingly implement requirements for liability waivers for activities including gyms, spas, amusement parks, gun ranges, water sports activities, scooter rentals and other recreational facilities or activities. This CLE will explore the risks with such activities, potential liability, assumption of the risk, waivers, release and limitations on liability. Whether representing plaintiffs or defendants, you will gain insight into validity, public policy consideration, enforceability and even when liability releases are prohibited.

Registration is limited to 20 so sign up today and don’t miss out on the fun!

This seminar is a basic to intermediate level program.
