About Us

Valuation Education was formed to provide valuation professionals with education focused on legal, regulatory and risk issues. We strive to offer education that is interesting, useful and affordable.

Valuation Education is brought to you by attorney Peter Christensen of the Christensen Law Firm (www.valuationlegal.com). Our courses are open to all appraisers. However, appraisers insured with LIA Administrators & Insurance Services (www.liability.com) who complete Appraiser Liability 101 become eligible for a discount on their E&O.


Peter Christensen designs the content for and instructs our courses. Peter has been a member of the California bar since 1993. His law practice is oriented to legal and regulatory issues concerning real estate valuation and insurance coverage. Peter has worked on some of the largest appraisal liability cases in the U.S. He earned both his B.S. in business administration and his law degree at the University of California at Berkeley. You can read more about his publications and experience here (More about Peter).


Summer Christensen constructs the technical aspects of the online courses offered by Valuation Education. She builds our videos, assessments and resource materials in the learning management platform. When not constructing a new course, Summer is a computer science student at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire.
