This fall, the Real Property Law Section is launching a new continuing education program, the Real Property Law Academy. The Academy is modeled in large part after the successful Business Bootcamp held by the Business Law Section. The Academy is being taught by some of the most respected and experienced Michigan real estate attorneys. The goal is to provide a basic understanding of the most fundamental aspects of a real estate practice. The Academy is targeted for both real estate attorneys and other attorneys who will periodically encounter real estate issues.
The program is being presented in two parts (Academy I and Academy II). Each part will present eight topics over a consecutive two day period. Academy I will focus on purchase agreements, due diligence, commercial financing, closings, commercial leasing, condominiums, summary proceedings and quiet title actions, and introductory zoning issues.
Academy II will focus on topics that require a deeper dive and may include property taxation, zoning litigation, insurance, condemnation, construction, mineral rights, construction, and other issues that a real estate practitioner will confront. Participants are highly encouraged to attend both Academy I and Academy II to get the full benefits from the program.
Academy I will be held in Grand Rapids on October 11-12, 2017, and in Troy on May 9-10, 2018.
Academy II will be held in Grand Rapids in fall, 2018 and in the metro Detroit area in spring, 2019.
