Real Estate Law

Juris Master
Real Estate Law Concentration

Real estate professionals cope with growing regulation, intensifying risk and liability concerns and increasingly complex decision environments. Clarifying the rights and responsibilities of relevant parties in any transaction is critical to its successful execution, and yet more complicated than ever before. Understanding the basics of contract and property law, in addition to more specialized law related to real estate transactions, will assist you in your efforts to make your deals more successful from start to finish.


Non-lawyers are often in the not-so-unique position to draft ordinances and negotiate contracts with limited to no formal education on the subject. While trial and error often works, the skill set I gleaned from Emory Law's JM program is much more efficient and effective.
