We are back from the ALI-ABA CLE programs on eminent domain that just took place in Arizona. It’s programs, plural, because there were two of tem: the regular annual one that caters to practitioners with some demonstrable track record in the field, and “Eminent Domain 101,” an elementary program for novices. Guess what? In spite of the ongoing recession, the programs were well attended.
We are not sure why this is so, given the tightening of belts at many law firms. Maybe the incidence of takings is holding steady.
