Center for Real Estate Studies Capstone I and II
The Center for Real Estate Studies Capstone Seminar is limited to students affiliated with the Center. In each year that the course is offered, the theme and topic changes to address current issues in real estate law and practice. In each year’s offering, the course will focus on key skills and competencies of transactional lawyers, taught in the context of a real estate transaction. Importantly, students will mostly learn not through lecture or discussion but by doing in various simulated situations. Students will develop their skills in interviewing, counseling, negotiation, contract drafting, legal research and preparation of a research memo, oral presentations, and the like. These will also provide opportunity for students to develop and refine competencies such as written and oral communication, organization, problem solving, creativity, teamwork, client relations, legal analysis, dedication and effort, giving and taking feedback, and some others. In addition, students will be working collaboratively.
This course is also designated as a Practice Based Learning (PBL) course.
