One part of this course will involve a discussion of a typical commercial real estate transaction and the preparation and analysis of important components and documents. Typically the first hour of class meetings will be devoted to this part of the course. A second part of the course will be a discussion of property issues that are of current concern to members of the practicing bar. The source of the issues is a listserv maintained by the ABA for the practicing real estate bar, which allows attorneys to submit questions arising out of their practice and receive advice from practitioners around the country. Each week students will be assigned one or more short questions, will research the questions, and discuss the results of their research and advice in the class meeting.
