From Nassau Suffolk Law Services:
"On Thursday, December 12, 2013, the Suffolk County Bar Academy of Law, in collaboration with the Pro Bono Project and Nassau Suffolk Law Services, will present a free three-credit foreclosure training for volunteer attorneys. The program will be held in the Great Hall at the Suffolk County Bar Association in Hauppauge from 1 p.m.-4 p.m. with lunch served at 12:30 p.m.
The program is mandatory for attorneys currently participating in the SCBA Foreclosure Settlement Conference project, but other attorneys who are not in the Project may attend the lecture and receive the MCLE credit, provided they agree to take a foreclosure matter on a volunteer basis. Other topics the program will cover: Foreclosure Trends in Suffolk County; The Settlement Process; The SCBA's Foreclosure Settlement Project. To register call the Academy at (631) 234-5588.
Also of interest is a new administrative rule signed by District Administrative Judge C. Randall Hinrichs which, effective November 1, 2013, enacts procedures in Suffolk County Supreme Court for the filing of the Foreclosure Action Surplus Monies form to track surplus monies as a result of a foreclosure sale.
