You need a solid, basic understanding of zoning in order to represent clients who deal with real estate. Zoning issues arise regularly for the residential real property conveyancer, high-stakes commercial deal-maker, title certifier, developer’s counsel, lender’s counsel, business or litigation generalist, and municipal lawyer. This program explains the basics of zoning in Massachusetts. It is geared to those who are relatively new lawyers or new to the practice area, but also offers value for the more experienced practitioner who wants a refresher course. Planners and other non-lawyers also find it helpful. It helps you to understand how to review and apply a zoning ordinance or bylaw, how to be effective in practicing before local boards, and what happens in an appeal to the Land Court. Let MCLE’s faculty of zoning experts strengthen your skill set for your next zoning-related matter.
