Professor Nestor Davidson explained to LLM Guide why specialty courses in property and sustainability are more important than ever due to the pandemic.
How we develop and manage our built environment matters now more than ever in a pandemic, and real estate attorneys are the lynchpin for every aspect of this vital practice.
“Real estate has been an increasingly important part of global markets for decades and the fundamental role it plays in cities will continue even as we emerge from the current crisis with new insights for a changing world,” says Nestor Davidson, faculty director of the Urban Law Center at Fordham University’s School of Law.
It is a similar story at Fordham, which offers LL.M. courses on environmental law, land use, climate change law and policy. “Sustainability is an important aspect of both the core real estate curriculum as well as the broader educational ecosystem at Fordham,” says Davidson, the Albert Walsh chair in real estate, land use and property law.
