I have been teaching college students, lawyers and real estate professionals for 40 years. I am able to draw on my experience as a practicing attorney landlord, land developer and property owner to understand what students want to learn and how best to take complicated subjects and make them seem simple with real life examples. it is also important in all legally oriented education for students to understand the limits of their own position and to make sure consumers get legal advice before taking positions that compromise legal rights.
My classes regularly get the highest marks from student evaluations because they are meaningful, to the point and fun. Many students say they will only take courses from me and come back year after year. I am able to take classes that sound like boredom at the highest level – contracts, fair housing and antitrust but make the subject relevant to today’s real estate environment.
