The course will take a practical, “hands on” approach to the multi-faceted area of real estate development law. Case studies based on actual, “real world” projects will serve as the backdrop for our examination of the myriad of legal disciplines that a real estate development lawyer needs to master in order to be successful. Disciplines explored will range from traditional real estate topics such as the leasing, acquisition and conveyance of real property to tax, partnership, bankruptcy, environmental, finance, ethics and public policy considerations. We will examine the role a lawyer plays during each stage of the life cycle of a real estate project, with particular emphasis being placed on how a lawyer’s actions and judgments can serve to enhance (or detract from) the ultimate success of a real estate deal. Mock negotiations by students (utilizing the actual documents used on the projects on which the case studies are based) and presentations by guest speakers from around the real estate world (lawyers, developers and governmental representatives) will be among the techniques used to teach students to think like real estate development lawyers.
