The text discusses the reasons for the real estate market's collapse and describes the new regulatory structures that have been created in response. It also provides a complete update on how Article 9 of the UCC has affected real estate finance and how the Internet is transforming the real estate industry."--Publisher's website.

The book explores all of the thought processes, skills and disciplines that a lawyer employs when representing the developer of a commercial real estate project. The book adopts a practical, skill-oriented approach in examining the role that the real estate development lawyer plays at each of the following ten stages of the development of a commercial real estate project: 1. Gaining control of the project site; 2. Securing governmental approvals and incentives; 3. Forming and capitalizing the project entity; 4. Closing the land acquisition; 5. Obtaining construction financing; 6. Designing and constructing the project; 7. Negotiating the project lease; 8. Executing an interim exit strategy; 9. Operating the project; and 10. Selling the project. The purpose of the book is to introduce law students and young lawyers to the real world issues that lawyers face every day when they strive to help their developer clients achieve their business objectives. The focus of the book is on why real estate development lawyers do what they do and not on the specifics of how they do it.

The Other Side of Pedagogy

Lacan's Four Discourses and the Development of the Student Writer

Author: T. R. Johnson

Publisher: SUNY Press

ISBN: 1438453213

Category: Education

Page: 256

View: 3280

Delineates Lacan’s theory of the four discourses as a practical framework through which faculty can reflect on where their students are, developmentally, and where they might go. University classrooms are increasingly in crisis—though popular demands for accountability grow more insistent, no one seems to know what our teaching should seek to achieve. This book traces how we arrived at our current impasse, and it uses Lacan’s theory of the four discourses to chart a path forward via an analysis of the freshman writing class. How did we forfeit a meaningful set of goals for our teaching? T. R. Johnson suggests that, by the 1960s, the work of Bergson and Piaget had led us to see student growth as a journey into more and more abstract thought, a journey that will happen naturally if the teacher knows how to stay out of the way. Since the 1960s, we’ve come to see development, in turn, only as a vague initiation into the academic community. This book, however, offers an alternative tradition, one rooted in Vygotsky and the feminist movement, that defines the developing student writer in terms of a complex, intersubjective ecology, and then, through these precedents, proposes a fully psychoanalytic model of student development. To illustrate his practical use of the four discourses, Johnson draws on a wide array of concepts and a colorful set of examples, including Franz Kafka, Keith Richards, David Foster Wallace, Hannah Arendt, and many others. “Graceful, provocative, thoughtful, and well researched, The Other Side of Pedagogy connects theory and teaching in compelling ways. This is a groundbreaking book that scholars of writing will want to read, reread, and teach.” — Joseph Harris, author of A Teaching Subject: Composition Since 1966
