I'm heading to Hollywood (Florida, that is) for the annual US Shopping Center Law Conference, put on by the International Council of Shopping Centers. They are expecting 1150 real estate transactional attorneys this year, up from the past few years. You can find details, and download the program (under the heading "Event Brochure" here.
For a real estate transactional attorney, the Shopping Center Law Conference is the best way to get a finger on the pulse of the practice. Basic programs have titles like "Title Insurance and Surveys: From Point A to Point Z" and "Basics of Insurance" (you can blame me for that unexciting name -- that's the seminar I'm co-presenting).
But a number of programs each year also focus on timely issues, like "Minefields, Sheer Cliffs and Rough Roads: The Landscape of Loan Workouts in 2010" and "Economic Risks and Opportunities for Real Estate Following the Great Recession" (to be presented by Prof. Gyourko of Wharton).
It should be a great program this year and I encourage those teaching Real Estate Transactions to consider attending next year.
