Real Estate Legal Planning and Practice
This course provides students with practical lawyering experience in the planning and implementation of a real estate deal. It uses a series of specific, related transactions (i.e. the acquisition and renovation of a commercial or mixed-use building in New York City, and the subsequent leasing or other disposition of the resulting units) as a base for examining both legal and practical problems arising in such a deal. Course work emphasizes planning (i.e. problem identification, the development of alternatives), negotiation, and document drafting.
This upper-level seminar course provides a mixture of advanced doctrinal instruction and skills development within the context of complex real estate transactional work.
Recommended for the Following Professional Pathways: Real Estate and Land Use; Corporate Transactions and Governance; General Practice – Transactional
