Fordham launches LLM in Real Estate

Students looking for a Master of Law degree in real estate now have another option on where to obtain their LL.M. Fordham Law School in New York City just launched an LL.M. in Real Estate. 

Fordham is the only law school in New York City, and one of three in the U.S., to offer a graduate law program in real estate. The other two schools are University of Miami and UIC John Marshall Law School in Chicago. 

“Fordham’s robust real estate offerings and central location in the real estate capital of the world provides a unique opportunity for students to enhance their careers,” said Dean Matthew Diller.

The 24-credit program can be completed in as few as two semesters, although students can also choose to take the program on a part-time basis. It is intended for attorneys looking to deepen their understanding of real estate law or to open up new career opportunities in real estate. 

“Students in our program will have access to our law school’s exceptional faculty and many real estate offerings and will be just a subway ride away from the world’s leading developers and law firms,” added Professor Nestor M. Davidson, Faculty Director of the Fordham Urban Law Center. “It’s an exceptional opportunity for lawyers seeking to build their real estate practice.” 

The program provides students with a solid foundation in real estate law, including key areas such as real estate finance, residential and commercial leasing, land use, and affordable housing, as well as various areas such as environmental law, corporate law, tax, and related legal fields.

“This is a tremendous chance for attorneys looking to bolster their experience and learn from great real estate attorneys working in the nation’s most dynamic market,” added Toni Jaeger-Fine, the assistant dean of international and non-J.D. programs at Fordham Law School.
