    CPE Credit: 1.5

    Level: Basic

    Recommended Prerequisite: None

    Field of Study: Specialized Knowledge

    Civil courts throughout the U.S. have used a range of tracing methodologies to identify commingled property when identification is not feasible. Contrary to what the name suggests, certain tracing methodologies do not permit practitioners to separate out untainted funds from tainted ones, or to follow the progress of a specific deposit from one account to another. Rather, these methodologies offer an equitable substitute for this difficult task. This session will explain the mechanics of equitable tracing methodologies and why the courts use one method over another.

    You Will Learn How To:

    • Identify the various equitable tracing methodologies accepted by U.S. courts
    • Explain and understand the mechanics and processes in applying those methodologies to specific examples
    • Determine which methodology to apply based on context and relevant case law
