You know the phrase “assumption of risk,” but how does it apply when a lawsuit is filed? Find out in this small group exercise led by outdoor recreation attorney Brian Augenthaler. Attendees will be provided with the legal underpinnings and elements of the assumption of risk defense and then broken up into the small groups to discuss real life cases. We will then reconvene to share predictions of how the court ruled and close with a discussion of what actually happened.
