Estate Law Weekend
To my Friends and Colleagues: I have, once again, been entrusted with the honor and privilege of chairing the St. John's University School of Law 2017 CLE Real Estate Law Weekend which is a comprehensive 16 credit CLE Weekend Real Estate Law Seminar focusing exclusively on real estate law, "From Contract through Closing". The Program will be geared towards seasoned and veteran real estate law practitioners as well as those of you who may be new to the practice of real estate law. The last few years that I have chaired this Program had proven to be an overwhelming success, with sell-out crowds, that I attribute primarily to the pro-active participation by the Attendees. I am, once again, pleased to advise that Judge Philip S. Straniere, Acting Supreme County Justice and Supervising Judge of the Civil Court, will accompany me on the panel. His knowledge of real estate law is without equal as many of you know. Also accompanying me on the panel is Catherine Schiavone, Esq. Chief Clerk, Richmond County. She will be providing invaluable insights as to recording tips and as to navigating ACRIS. The Lecture will, no doubt, be cutting edge and the Materials will be as current as the day of the Lecture. I intend to cover recent cases and other new matters involving the practice of real estate law in order that you, as real estate legal practitioners, may remain on the cutting edge of the law. I anticipate a highly inter-active dialogue on the topics that will be discussed. Furthermore, I expect to cover ethics as it affects real estate legal practitioners. For those of you who are interested in attending, you should contact Claire C. McKeever, Assistant Dean for Alumni Relations and CLE at 718.990.6028 or by E-Mail at for details, and to register, or feel free to contact me directly at my contact information below.
Furthermore, the following is a link to the website which, contains details, and registration information about the Seminar:
In summary, the St. John's University School of Law 2016 CLE weekend, will be held on , and , each day, at the Jamaica, Queens Campus (16 hours of CLE credits). There will be breaks during the day and registration will include Continental Breakfast and Lunch. Since I do have an unrestricted free reign as to the topics, I have the luxury of focusing on those topics from the Materials that the Attendees consider important. So feel free to E-Mail me with suggestions that you would like for me to focus on. The Materials are quite comprehensive, and they will be made available upon registration in hard copy format, in PDF format and on-line by a link that will be provided to those Registrants who would prefer to view the materials directly from your laptop or from your I-Pad.
