Assuming you’re a fully paid-up member of the Asian American Bar Association of New York, I invite you to register for our new eight-week, sixteen-hour continuing legal education course on real estate bankruptcy. As usual, tuition is free (in part due to the support of the ABA’s Real Property Trust and Estate Law Section and First American Title Insurance Company of New York).
We start on Monday evening, January 9, 2012 at 6:30 PM. We’ll continue on Monday evenings from 6:30 PM through 8:55 PM, but we won’t meet on January 16, 2012 (Dr. M. L. King Day) or February 20, 2012 (Presidents’ Day).
The course is designed to help you open the door to new opportunities. If you think you’re not ready to represent owners and tenants of distressed property and lenders holding mortgages on distressed property, we’d like to help you get there. With foreclosed properties proliferating in New York’s diverse communities, the need for lawyers with a working knowledge of real estate as well as the Bankruptcy Code is bound to expand. Yet, despite the impact of bad economic times, many of you have told me that you shy away from bankruptcy-related matters. By teaching you the basic tools you need to get started, we hope to help you build your practice and serve the communities.
I urge you to reserve a seat quickly. Our last five courses were oversubscribed in one week. So, if you’re ready to commit yourself to attend at least six of our eight sessions, please act quickly. All you need to do is send me an e-mail message ([email protected]) with your contact info.
If you attend all eight sessions, we anticipate that you’ll earn 19.2 CLE credits.
Our classroom will be the Village Room at First American Title Insurance Company of New York. The address is 633 Third Avenue. It’s between 40th and 41st Streets.
Here’s table listing the sessions and the topic for each.
1) January 9, 2012 The Structure of the Bankruptcy Code
2) January 23, 2012 Pre-Bankruptcy Planning and Commencement of a Case
3) January 30, 2012 Rights of Mortgagors and Mortgagees Under Chapter 7
4) February 6, 2012 How Chapter 13 Works
5) February 13, 2012 Rights of Mortgagors and Mortgagees Under Chapter 11
6) February 27, 2012 Avoidance Actions and Bankruptcy Remote Structuring
7) March 5, 2012 Unexpired Leases and Executory Contracts
8) March 12, 2012 Wrap-Up, Review, and Student Panel
Each session will include a networking coffee break to allow you to meet and get to know your fellow students. We’ll use this time to eat, gossip, and exchange business cards. By the way, the coffee and snacks are free also. We will provide written materials for each session (without charge) and send them to you by e-mail. Reading them before class will enhance your knowledge and enjoyment.
