Mini Law at Cummings
The 2007 Julius Briskin Mini Law Program at the Cummings Jewish Centre for Seniors (CJCS) kicks off its third year Monday April 16 with a lecture on this year’s tax bill.
The Mini Law Program, which offers lectures on relevant legal topics by experienced lawyers and experts, provides seniors with information about basic legal concepts and de-mystifies the practice of law. This year, as an added feature, a resource kiosk at each lecture will make printed materials, information and documentation available to participants.
Chartered appraiser Neil Gold and municipal law specialist Ralph Lipper will lead the first lecture with a discussion of the implications of the new tax bills for property owners. The speakers will also give advice on contesting your real estate assessment.
Further lectures in the series include Family Companies, with Max Bernard, April 7, The Amazing Evolution of Family Law: Choices and Challenges, with Lynne Kassie, May 7, and How Anti-Terror Laws Affect Your Civil Rights with Patrick Healy, May 14.
The first lecture is at 7:30 pm at the Gelber Conference Centre, 2 Cummings Square. The series fee is $50 for CJCS members, and $65 for non-members. Refreshments will be provided. Contact Joyce Tobenstein a (514) 342-1234 ext. 7318, or Paula Farber at (514) 342-1234 ext. 7256
