Real Estate


Real estate law and development is a dynamic, growing, and complicated area. Building on the foundational first-year course on property, students may study the financing and development of commercial and residential real estate transactions and investments in our upper-level curriculum.

The college offers an innovative, hands-on Real Estate Development Law course that is routinely praised by both students and potential employers. The course mixes simulated negotiations, city council meetings, and real estate deals to provide students the practical experience and knowledge that real estate development firms and law firms are seeking.

The program fills a niche of providing hands-on learning in real estate development law and deals that American law schools often miss. The groundbreaking course is different than traditional law courses in that it places students in the middle of simulated real estate deals. Students learn about the business, how to effectively represent their clients, and what to expect once they graduate.
