The course examines how deals are structured, transactions are completed, and real estate law is applied to complex real estate development and investment. The course investigates the key legal and business issues typically present in the real estate development “life cycle.” Topics include acquisition and assemblage of property, choice of the entity form, the structuring of equity joint ventures and partnerships, syndications and private placements, construction and permanent loans, creation of real estate value through leasing, and the consequences when deals go bad, such as through workouts and bankruptcy. Practical skills will be emphasized through applied learning assignments, including case study analyses and mock negotiations. Students will have the opportunity to prepare, evaluate, and/or negotiate agreements that are used at various times during the development life cycle.
