Deep coverage of sophisticated issues. Very hands-on useful knowledge, strong answers for various questions.
This has been an excellent presentation — one I would attend again. Good job!
The material presented is excellent.
Great materials, great topics, and great speakers. Good practical discussions on very relevant subjects and topics to my practice.
Great update course to get info on all new developments affecting tax, partnerships and K.P. Thank you for a great course.
This was the most useful and interesting continuing education program I have done in a long time, possibly ever! The panelists all went out of their way to share their knowledge and insights in a helpful manner. I appreciate them taking time from their no doubt very busy practice to contribute to this program. I would definitely attend this course again.
Course was excellent, have attended several times in the past.
One of the few seminars in the country that have addressed REIT tax topics.
This course was exactly what I was looking for as an attorney who’s working as In-House Counsel and have only been practicing for 2-3 years. I regularly work on JV and real estate transactions which deal extensively with the topics and subject matter covered in the course. There was a perfect mix of covering subject matter which I needed to ‘brush up’ on and new ideas and techniques. I would highly recommend this course to both newly admitted and veteran attorneys.
A monumental effort was made to have the best practitioners present their materials. The quality of the course more than met my expectations.
Over my career I have attended a lot of CPE. This meeting was one of the best. Relevant topics, current topics, national speakers, really an excellent meeting.
I have been attending this course and its progenitor since 1976 and it is just the best course out there.
Great speakers. Very knowledgeable. Really appreciate hearing differences of opinion among experts.
This is an excellent course and I look forward to it every year. I often use the materials throughout the year in my practice. I really enjoy the panel discussions and how we learn how concepts apply practically.
