COURSE TOPICS

Bridging the Digital Divide: Real Estate Primer for Broadband Access and 5G

Evan Feinman, Office of Governor Ralph S. Northam
Ken Schmidt, Steel in the Air, Inc.

Hear from Governor Northram’s office on programs to expand the access of broadband in Virginia. This is paired with a national expert on cell tower and repeater facilities—what does the landscape look like for property owners and landlords? What challenges exist for “last mile” implementation—or will 5G solve all problems? This presentation will include a survey of the relevant Virginia legislation specific to enhanced broadband access and 5G.            

Hot Topics in E-Real Estate (E-Notarization, E-Recordation, and E-Signatures)

Gary Clemens, Clerk, Loudoun County Circuit Court
Chip Dicks, Esq., Gentry Locke

COVID-19 and 2020 accelerated change and forced upon real estate practitioners the adoption of new ways of practicing real estate.  One of the key legislative players in Virginia’s e-laws discusses proposed modification and developments in e-commerce legislation. We will also hear from a very experienced and respected clerk of circuit court on how technological advances have provided continuity in real estate practices—and what challenges remain.

A Wellness Discussion: Maintaining Competence to Practice Law (Ethics)

Justin Earley, Esq., The Earley Legal Group

Mental health matters to the ethical practice of law. This is not just a matter of common sense, but of the Virginia Rules of Professional Conduct. Rule 1.1 requires that a lawyer “provide competent representation to a client,” and Comment 7 notes that maintaining “the mental, emotional, and physical ability necessary for the representation of a client is an important aspect of maintaining competence to practice law.” In short, our profession cannot ethically ignore the state of mental health in the legal profession. Our profession, however, struggles to catch up to this reality. Numerous studies now show lawyers to be above the national average in everything from depression to anxiety to alcoholism and more. This presentation will (1) examine the crisis state of mental health in the legal profession, (2) summarize the studies and reports documenting these trends, (3) examine the LEOs, Rules of Professional Conduct, and MCLE Opinions that make this an ethical issue, and (4) perhaps most importantly, outline some practical solutions on a personal and industry level.           
National Legal Landscape and Developments in Real Estate in COVID-19:  Force Majeure, Essential Purpose, and More from Dirt Law

Prof. Dale Whitman, Dean Emeritus, University of Missouri, and Visiting Professor of Law, Arizona State University

Professor of Law and moderator of the nationally followed “DIRTlaw” listserv blog (http://listserv.umkc.edu/scripts/wa.exe?SUBED1=DIRT&A=1), Professor Dale Whitman will survey the emerging case law following the wave of challenges between landlords and tenants and other parties in the wake of stay-at-home orders, moratoria, and other extraordinary circumstances.  Professor Whitman is the DIRTlaw moderator and successor to the late Professor Patrick Randolph, who was a leading speaker at the VSB Real Property Section’s first Advanced Real Estate Seminar, in 1997.

Brokerage for Real Estate Today and Tomorrow:  Reminders and What’s on the Horizon for the Changing Landscape of Brokerage

Prof. Barlow Burke, American University Washington College of Law

A review of the basics and the misperceptions—whom can brokers “represent” and what can they do (and what may they not do)—are attorneys required to follow brokers rules? What models for selling real estate are evolving—auctions, online, and automated players—what is a lawyer to do?

Yes, Virginia, There Is Such a Thing as Series LLCs—Now What?

Jerry Friedlander, Esq., Friedlander & Friedlander PC

This presentation will discuss the use of series LLCs in Virginia: how and when to use them, as well as the lending, insurance, and marketability issues they present.

Caveat Advocatus (Lawyer Beware): Occupational Risks for Lawyers and Tools to Help

The Honorable Justice William C. Mims, Supreme Court of Virginia
Margaret Ogden, Office of the Executive Secretary of the Supreme Court of Virginia

Real Estate lawyers face stress from subject area requirements, challenging clients, ethics and conflicts situations, and eroding public perception of value. This presentation by a Supreme Court of Virginia Justice and the Wellness Coordinator from the Office of the Executive Secretary will discuss the profession’s recognition of these risks and various strategies at combating these risks.
