As I continue ?Traversing the Law,? studying and writing about court cases involving boundary disputes and land surveyors, I have found everything from the ridiculous to the sublime. In some cases, I have to shake my head in disbelief over what I was reading leaving me with just one question: What went wrong? This seminar will investigate the answer to this question by a detailed study of several court decisions involving surveyors and surveys that went terribly wrong. The painful lessons learned by others through the school of hard knocks can be painlessly explored and appreciated without the accompanying liability and damages that attach to boundary disputes and negligence actions. These cases will be studied and discussed through a Power Point presentation.
 
Footnote: ?Traversing the Law,? is a reference to Jeff's monthly column in P.O.B. magazine that he has been writing since 2004.
