Stay out of Court: Mock Trial

Plaintiff Dale Wright has filed a quiet title action against Defendant Lee Hawk to clear title to 35 acres of prime land.
Aside from questions as to the location of their common boundary, both Wright and Hawk have had conflicting surveys performed and the two surveyors will testify in support of their respective surveys.
Gary Kent, LS, Schneider Corporation, will act as the bailiff for this mock trial. This half-day program features an actual judge and lawyers, and offers a real-world scenario of what surveyors experience in a Massachusetts court room.


Leadership Panel

With topics suited for entry level professionals to seasoned managers, four leaders in the surveying and engineering professions give their opinions on a variety of questions presented by Proprietors' Council Chair, Michael Feldman, President, Feldman Land Surveyors. The panel will be comprised of the following leaders:
  • Lisa A. Brothers, PE, LEED AP BD+C, President & CEO, Nitsch Engineering
  • Michael A. Clifford, Principal-in-Charge, DGT Survey Group
  • William J. Doucet, President, Doucet Survey Inc.
