** available at any time of day and in time increments convenient to you through date referenced above **, together with the Houston Bar Association (HBA), are pleased to present a special online CLE course on tort law. Texas law allows contract parties to disclaim tort liability ... sometimes. Texas courts and unhappy contract parties have wandered through this legal minefield, attempting to define when tort claims may be effectively disclaimed, and when they are not, with inconsistent results. Should your client agree to that disclaimer? Will a Texas court enforce it? These are some of the questions that will be answered in this seminar. This course features a streaming audio (as well as a downloadable MP3 audio) presentation from a live CLE seminar on this topic that was originally conducted by the Houston Bar Association (HBA) on May 23, 2013. You can access this presentation on demand at any time during the course of the seminar session.

Some of the subjects in this course include:

  • Prototypical Contract Situations

  • Seller's Potential Options for Avoiding Buyer Claims Based on Misrepresentations or Non-Disclosure

  • Statutory Limitations on Seller's Contractual Ability to Allocate Risks to Buyers

  • Innocent or Negligent Misrepresentation by Seller

  • Is Silence a Defense to Fraud?

  • Intentional or Reckless Misrepresentation or Non-Disclosure by Seller

  • Contract Assumptions of Risk

  • Helping Clients Evaluate Contract Disclaimers

The speaker for this course is Mr. Ken Alexander, an attorney with the firm of Porter Hedges LLP in Houston. He is admitted to practice in all state courts in Texas and before the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern, Northern, Southern and Western Districts of Texas. He is a member of the State Bar of Texas and the Houston Bar Association. He received his law degree from Harvard Law School (J.D., 1978) and his undergraduate degree from Rice University (B.S., 1975). A more extensive biography for Mr. Alexander may be found at his firm's website.
