Working with different professionals in developing a piece of property may be one of the biggest incentives to going into this field of law. Unlike other fields, there is a big opportunity to step out of the legal field and work with a very diverse and potentially interesting group of people. This week's lesson has been much more fun for our group to work on; it allowed us to think "outside of the box" and think in practical terms.
Working in a group was exceptionally helpful for this assignment. Each group member had their own good ideas, and suggestions for more professionals that you may need. These ranged from architects, engineers, bankers, real estate agents, and long list of subcontractors. Each professional group has its own legal issues to explore, ranging from agency law, contracts, torts, and other liability issues.
