Legal Drafting: Commercial Leasing

Course Number: 
LAW 758
Credits: 
2

This class will focus on lease agreements between landlords and tenants of commercial real estate, including leases for office space, for retail stores, and for dustrial/manufacturing property.  Almost every business will be a party to a commercial real estate lease agreement, either as landlord or tenant, at some point in the life of that business. Knowledge of commercial real estate leases is an essential skill for real estate lawyers, as well as corporate lawyers. Litigators will also need to know the fundamentals of commercial real estate leases because these agreements often result in disputes and lawsuits.  This class will also explore some of the alternative uses for leases, such as leases being used as financing alternatives.  Class sessions will be devoted to section-by-section analysis of leases followed by student exercises to draft and revision of these documents.
