Real Estate Law and Land Use Policy On-demand Course

Real Estate Law and Land Use Policy is a survey course designed to familiarize students with many of the legal issues commercial real estate practitioners deal with on a regular basis.  It provides an overview of the so-called “bundle of rights” associated with real estate ownership, as well as a thorough analysis of the contractual agreements used to create and transfer those rights.  Emerging trends in municipal land use regulation and public-private partnerships are also analyzed to help students gain a better understanding of the policy tools government entities rely upon to stimulate, control and tax real estate development.  Students completing the course should be in a better position to identify and evaluate potential legal problems involved in complex commercial real estate development and investment transactions.
