CLE: Competence, Excellence, and Diversity in the Illinois Real Estate Practice 2019
Competence, excellence, and diversity are not pejorative terms or concepts. Illinois lawyers practicing in the 21st century need to know how to communicate with a new generation of clients, lawyers, colleagues, and associates, while maintaining relevancy in the practice. Real estate attorneys and general practitioners with basic to intermediate practice experience who attend this full-day seminar on April 24 in Naperville will better understand: how to start or expand your practice to include residential or commercial real estate; how to work effectively with a broad scope of clients and staff; how to create a diverse and inclusive law firm; how to protect your client from future litigation; how to recognize and refer a colleague in need; and the essentials of both commercial and residential real estate practices.
The program is presented by the ISBA Real Estate Law Section. It qualifies for 6.50 hours MCLE credit, including 1.0 hour Professionalism, Civility or Legal Ethics credit, 1.0 hour Mental Health and Substance Abuse credit, and 1.50 hour Diversity and Inclusion credit (subject to approval).
