Environmental and Land Use Considerations for Real Estate Transactions 2012

The Environmental & Land Use Law Section and the Real Property, Probate & Trust Law Section of the Florida Bar are jointly hosting an upcoming Continuing Legal Education Seminar that should interest real property attorneys. It will also be useful to attorneys involved at any stage of the development process who want to gain a better understanding of the environmental and land use components of that process.Past feedback from this CLE has been very positive.

The CLE, entitled "Environmental and Land Use Considerations for Real Estate Transactions 2012," will be April 20, 2012, at the Tampa Airport Marriott. The schedule is below. I am co-chairing this CLE program, so please email me if you have any questions.
