Marion County Probate Judge Paige Vick received a certificate of completion from Michael Hill, senior attorney from the Alabama Law Institute, and Honorable Greg Cain, president of the Alabama Probate Judges Association for completing the “Basic Law for Probate Judges Course.” This course was conducted by the Alabama Law Institute and the Alabama Probate Judges Association.
The course was an in-depth study of the law administered by probate judges in the following areas: probate of wills, administration of estates, commitments to mental facilities, adoptions, guardianships, conservatorships, eminent domain, election laws, real estate and general courtroom procedure.
Honorable David Kimberley, deputy director of the Alabama Law Institute, stated, “This course offers judges the opportunity to be advised of new case law and statutory changes, as well as the legal procedures affecting their job.” This course was conducted in nine sessions of two or three days each over the past four years.
"This in-depth course in probate court matters, taught by some of the state's most renown judges from the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals and the Alabama Supreme Court, along with some of Alabama's most elite practitioners, was, and will be, a great source of information to share with our local attorneys and to apply in the courtroom,” Vick stated. “I am thrilled to be able to say that I completed it."
