DRONE TECHNOLOGY. Drones are the new tool companies are raving about for their marketing and personal use.

Stay up to date with technology and ahead of the competition. This course is designed to familiarize business owners with the practical use of drone technology.

ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES. Human activity has been impacting the environment for thousands of years. Industrial, chemical, and energy-related waste materials have had an exponential effect on the environment. It has only been in the last 50 years or so that environmental laws have been enacted to protect public health, safety, and welfare, as well as preserving natural resources. These and other issues have made environmental law more and more prevalent in property transactions and litigation, as opposing groups seek to contain and remediate costs associated with contaminated sites and similar issues.
