About this Program

Please Note: This course is available in New Jersey to satisfy 1.0 credit of the Newly Admitted Attorney requirement in the category of Civil Trial preparation.

Car dealerships may have a reputation for hiring slick talkers, but they’re no match for a knowledgeable attorney. Having a full understanding of state laws and the basis for liability can help an attorney identify deceptive practices in purchasing a vehicle. In this course, New Jersey attorney Jonathan Rudnick drives home the basics of suing a car dealership.  He offers an analysis of consumer fraud statutes, a discourse on how to properly and effectively research a case, and an examination of the motives and incentives behind car dealerships. The course will prepare any attorney to legally battle a deceitful car dealership, and should be watched in conjunction with Rudnick's second course "Discovery in Car Dealership Cases".

Agenda:
I.    Consumer Fraud Statute
II.    The Basis for Liability
III.    Deciding to Take a Case
IV.    Industry Insurance Coverage
V.    The Truth and Lending Act
VI.    Prior History Cases
VII.    Arbitration Clauses

 

Please Note: This course is available in New Jersey to satisfy 1.0 credit of the Newly Admitted Attorney requirement in the category of Civil Trial preparation.

Attorney Rudnik did an excellent job in a very complicated area.

Thomas

Very interesting, I learned quite a bit about car dealers. Hopefully, they will supplant Attorneys as the the most vilified professionals.

He made some important points which will assist in deciding to take on car dealer.

Gerald
Hermitages, TN

The explanation of the business practices of auto dealerships was most enlightening and valuable. The New Jersey citations are likely to be very valuable to someone in New Jersey.

Geoffrey
San Leandro, CA

Would be helpful if some examples were given on how to value and negotiate cases. E.G., what is a case worth where undisclosed accident existed?

RICHARD
Houston, TX

thought this might not be interesting, but was pleasantly surprised. Speaker covered needed background info as well as law.

Sue
Austin, TX

This is an interesting, narrow topic. I found it was helpful if not in my practice then certainly in my personal life.

Jennifer
Austin, TX

This would be much more helpful if I lived in New Jersey. As it is, I think the national appeal is limited.

Harrison, NY

The speaker is very engaging. Interesting introduction for a new practitioner.

I work at a car dealership and this was extremely helpful in our day to day dealings with customers. This is also helpful to consumers that would be buying a bar on what to look out for.
