Real Property Development LL.M. – Nation’s Best
The Real Property Development LL.M. — widely regarded as the nation's best and ranked by LL.M. Guide in 2021 as a Top 10 Real Estate Law Program — is designed for the law graduate or attorney who wants to acquire or expand expertise in planning, structuring, and financing real estate projects, either as a practitioner, owner, or developer. Given the increased complexity of real estate development, pursuing a specialized post-graduate degree is one of the most effective ways to acquire the necessary breadth and depth of experience in this field.
Available on campus and in an online format for maximum flexibility, the LL.M. explores the subjects necessary to develop an understanding of land acquisition, finance, regulation, tax law, construction law, residential and commercial development, landlord- tenant, closings, negotiation, planning strategies and drafting. The program offers hands-on learning and unparalleled networking and professional development to students and alumni.
Featuring an extensive range of law school profiles, an active discussion board, and an array of editorial content, LL.M. GUIDE is the premier web destination for LL.M. applicants. While its Top 10 Lists are not intended as definitive or scientific rankings, they take into consideration offered concentrations, research capacity, existing rankings, international balance, and location.
In addition to the LL.M. Guide’s recent top ten listing, Miami Law also received an Honor Roll ranking in the International Jurist for LL.M. Excellence in Career Advancement this year.
