This is a nuts-and-bolts course designed to provide students with an overview and understanding of common commercial real estate transactions in California, including key issues in the transaction documents. The course also covers the types of claims and remedies that come into play when disputes arise, and land use issues. The main transactions covered by the course include commercial leases, subleases and related agreements, purchase and sale agreements (including title and survey), construction contracts and architect agreements and real estate financing documents.

The class is taught by Susan Reinstra, a partner in the real estate group at Wilson Sonsini. Susan has an undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame, graduated from Stanford Law School and has been practicing real estate law for more than 25 years. Her practice focuses on the real estate needs of technology and life science companies.
