Registration Information
This course is restricted to upper division students only.

This course will cover finance of commercial real estate projects, including loan commitments, loan agreements, promissory notes, mortgages and deeds of trust, foreclosure and other loan collection methods, a brief review of bankruptcy law applied to commercial real estate loans, and a brief exposure to securitized real estate finance.  A traditional casebook will be used together with supplemental materials collected by the instructor.  The plan for the final evaluation is a regular in clasroom exam with true-false, multiple choice questions, and essays.  It will have a two hour time limit and word limits for each essay question.  Learning and relevant social opportunities beyond the classroom are offered.

The course will be a two hour course this year to accomodate the teacher's travel schedule.  We will start as usual but have a break in the middle of the semester while I am away, then resume and end at the time scheduled for exams.  In order to do that and comply with ABA requirements, we will have classes which are 75 minutes long twice a week as a three hour class would, but fewer of them total over the semester.
