The case-in-chief is Jackson v. Strickland, Alabama Supreme Court 2001. Utilizing the National Society of Professional Land Surveyor’s (NSPS) “Surveyor’s Creed and Canons,” this edition focuses on the pledge: “To give the utmost of performance.” Also of particular interest is Canon 1, to “refrain from conduct that is detrimental to the public,” and Canon 3 which states that surveyors “should accept assignments only in one’s area of professional competence and expertise.” Should a surveyor who, as the court in this case noted, “did not investigate the location of the recognized boundary line between the Strickland’s property and Jackson’s property,” actually practice boundary surveying? Is this not beyond the surveyor’s “area of professional competence and expertise”? Read the case and decide for yourself. This is a Correspondence Course with a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 8 pages. This 10-Page document has a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter and the case-in-chief.
OBJECTIVES: To enhance professional competency and improve practitioner’s knowledge of the law as it relates to the practice of land surveying.
