Our group seeks to encourage and stimulate an open and continuing dialog with academics, investors, lenders, urban technologists, community activists, conservationists, environmentalists, judges, politicians, civil servants and representatives of the media.
We organize speaker series, panels, conferences and other events, frequently in cooperation with other groups on campus and beyond. Please check back for updates throughout the academic year. The Columbia Urban and Real Estate Law Society takes a broad view of property – not only the conceptual, organizational and financial perspective of the developer and investor, not just the social justice aspects most relevant to consumers and occupants, but also the interests of numerous other stakeholders in the community and the articulation of their voices in administrative and judicial proceedings, in elections, media and legislatures.
