Real Estate Drafting

In this course students will learn to prepare and revise documents used in commercial real estate transactions from the perspective of each of the parties. Discussions and assignments will be based upon hypothetical fact patterns and mock negotiations by students and guest speakers. The course will teach students to identify legal and business issues that arise in the preparation and revision of documents, and to address them in a clear and well organized fashion. The course will cover letters of intent, real estate brokerage agreements, commercial leases and subleases, contracts for sale of vacant land and condominium units, deeds and easement agreements, and basic construction documents. The course will be useful to students who plan careers in real estate or other transaction-based areas of practice.
