New York City is the center of the real estate world and New York University School of Law alumni are at the center of the real estate industry. NYU School of Law students experience these intersections first-hand through participation in the Real Estate & Urban Policy Forum (REUPF), which endeavors to introduce its members to the practice of real estate law and urban development (terms defined broadly to include property law, financing, planning, development and land use) in the City.
The Andrew and Justin Segal Real Estate Roundtable
One of the highlights of REUPF is the Andrew and Justin Segal Real Estate Roundtable, where leading developers, practitioners, and policy makers meet with students to discuss cutting-edge issues in an informal setting. Established with generous support from two alumni of the school, Andrew Segal '92 and Justin Segal '96, these Roundtables bring back the Law School's alumni and other prominent figures to share their experiences in real estate. Recent guests include Carl Weisbrod '68, Leonard Boxer '63, Sheri Chromow '71, Henry Elghanayan '66, Jay Furman '71, Adam Glick, Jon Hanson, Raymond Harding '61, Jonathan Mechanic '77, Larry Nelson '55, Alan Pomerantz '68, Bruce Ratner, Charles Ratner '66, Larry Silverstein, William L. Zeckendorf, Ann Kappler '86, Robert P. Balachandran, John Lieber '90, Melanie Meyers, and Jay Neveloff ‘74.
REUPF Annual Panel of Real Estate LawyersEach fall REUPF hosts a panel of lawyers who discuss with students the practice of real estate law. This year's panel, which features practitioners in the private and public sectors, will take place on Wednesday, October 26, 2005 at 6:30 PM in Vanderbilt Hall, Room 206. The first thirty minutes of the event will be devoted to an informal reception at which food and drink will be served.
