    Product Description

    On the occasion of MCLE’s golden anniversary, MCLE introduces its MCLE 50 Points of Law, a series of FREE one-hour programs that celebrate the practice of law and our profession. Presented by experts in their respective fields, each program in this series addresses a different practice area, covering major developments and traps for the unwary over the past 50 years. This is our anniversary gift to you!

    Nothing is static in your transactional, land use, zoning, or commercial real estate practice. The law—and business expectations—seem to change weekly. It’s also not uncommon for two different courts to take completely different positions on a similar question. This special one-hour program flags some of the most significant recent issues facing real estate practitioners, and provides useful guidance for properly addressing them. The panelists have also been monitoring recent practice management decisions and issues, and share tools and guidance to keep your real estate practice running smoothly.
