Drafting and Negotiating Commercial Real Estate Documents: Contracts, Loan Documents, and Leases Seminar
Professor Douglas Bregman
J.D. Seminar 160 | 3 credit hours
This course dissects the major commercial real estate documents – loan documents, contracts, and commercial leases – by focusing on the drafting and negotiation of each. The course will examine the interplay between substantive legal issues and practical business and strategy questions in determining the contents of these documents. Some of the issues covered include the economics of the transaction, the rights and the responsibilities of the parties and the consequences of default. A significant portion of the course will focus on the role of negotiations in the process of determining the terms of the document and will include simulated negotiations and role playing.
Students may not receive credit for both this seminar and Drafting and Negotiating Commercial Transactional Documents or Drafting, Analyzing and Negotiating Complex Commercial Contracts.
