Environmental Law for Lending Institutions and Real Estate Transactions
Wednesday, June 15, 2011 | CLE Credit: 1.0

Soil and groundwater contamination often remains in place for well beyond the useful life of real property and the real estate upon which it sits. This is true for residential, commercial, agricultural and industrial properties. Contamination in soil, groundwater, soil vapor, radon, asbestos and lead-based paints are some of the more serious environmental problems that can linger at these sites. Come listen to an overview of how these issues can be addressed in real estate transactions through lending institution relations, real estate transaction requirements, insurance and common sense.

Decoding the Bankruptcy Code
Thursday, June 16, 2011 | CLE Credit: 1.0 

When a lawyer enters a bankruptcy court for the first time, it feels like a different world. Numbers like 362, 521 and 707 are batted back and forth, and terms such as “cram down,” “adequate protection,” and “lift stay” fly like a strange foreign vernacular. This strange banter has the effect of making the new lawyer feel alienated and excluded from the bankruptcy “clique.” This program aims to alleviate some of that confusion by demystifying the Bankruptcy Code jargon into plain English concepts.
