Topic I: Impact of Marriage of Valli   
  • What effect does the California Supreme Court’s In re Marriage of Valli decision have on California’s “Four T’s of Characterization”: Time, Tracing, Title and Transmutation?
  • Do Family Code section 852(a) anti-transmutation protections apply to a spouse’s acquisition of property from a third party?
  • Can Evidence Code section 662 have any role in characterizing property between spouses?
  • What portion of In re Marriage of Lucas is disapproved, and why?
  • Why did the concurring opinion exceed the majority opinion regarding property characterization, and what is the precedential result?
Topic II: Ethical Issues in Family Law
  • Honesty, secrecy and advocacy: the lawyer’s trilemma
  • Candor with opposing counsel: how much is ethical?
  • Distinguish your ethical duty of secrecy (Cal. Formal Opinion 1976-37) from the narrower lawyer-client privilege (Evid. Code sect. 952)
  • Business and Professions Code section 6106.9: the “Arnie Becker statute”
  • What modifications to the California Rules of Professional Conduct has the State Bar proposed, and why are there 67 of them?
