Real Estate Law and Business Forum
Private Club, Downtown Los Angeles
Real Estate Law and Business Forum
This is the can't-miss conference for those involved in real estate law and business in California. For over ten years, the USC Gould School of Law Real Estate Law and Business Forum has been the most highly attended law and business conference in the area. Programming is designed to appeal to both professionals and business people across the real estate field. Speakers include nationally-known business and legal leaders. The focus is on opportunities - for you and for your clients - and how to maximize potential in the current real estate market.
Business Knowledge and Legal Insight from the Best Nationally Recognized Speakers
The Forum provides the latest information on industry trends and offers real-world strategies for dealing with major challenges. It also provides face-to-face interaction with local public officials and industry experts from across the country. Programming typically focusses on big picture economic issues in the morning, with afternoon sessions highlighting the most important developments in finance, development and workouts. Tracked programming allows attendees to focus on the areas of real estate law and business that matter to them.
Programming for the 2014 Forum is underway. We expect the tone and content to be similar to past iterations of the Forum. Check back often for updates and further programming details.
