RELA hosts Meyer Last ’82 next Monday!

In collaboration with the Dean's Speaker Series for Students, the Cardozo Real Estate Law Association is excited to host, Meyer Last ’82, who will be coming to Cardozo Law this Monday, November 1st at Noon in Room 512.

Meyer Last is a partner in Fried Frank’s real estate practice and will be coming to speak to students about his practice, the kinds of issues he deals with, as well as about life working in “big law.” Mr. Last's practice focuses on real estate development, commercial leasing, financing and capital market transactions, acquisitions and dispositions, and workouts and bankruptcies. He has represented a broad range of clients, including developers, owners, institutional investors, lenders, real estate advisers and underwriters. See his profile here.

This is a great opportunity to hear from a real estate partner at Fried Frank--the city's #1 real estate big law firm.
