Description

For courses in real estate law, paralegal (introduction), legal concepts for paralegals, and introduction to law.

 

A hands-on approach to real estate law.

 

Real Estate Law Fundamentals, 1e, covers the processes, procedures, and legal concepts involved in real estate transactions using a practical, hands-on approach. Students are actively engaged in the material through video scenarios, sample forms, case studies, and practice exercises, and legal concepts are presented with practical examples to make them easier to grasp. Written as both a teaching text and as a professional reference manual, the text offers a well rounded approach that demystifies the often confusing world of real estate transactions.

 

MyLegalStudiesLab

Real Estate Law Fundamentals is accompanied by MyLegalStudiesLab, which gives students the opportunity to test themselves on key concepts from their textbook, learn how to apply the concepts to real-life scenarios, and practice the skills they have learned through a Virtual Law Office Experience.
