The Land Court’s jurisdiction may seem obvious from its name, but looks are deceiving. The Land Court tackles a wide range of issues on the cutting edge of real estate and land use law, from registration to foreclosures to zoning and environmental appeals. Attend this program for a chance to hear from the judges, recorder and chief title examiner of the Land Court. Hear what issues concern them and what they expect from the attorneys who appear before them. The audience will also have the opportunity to to ask the bench their questions about practice.

After this seminar, attendees will know what the Land Court looks for from lawyers appearing before it, whether at trial, in foreclosure proceedings, or in conveyances of registered land.

Specific Topics:

I. Introduction - State of the Land Court
II. Trying Your Case in the Land Court - Best Practices
III. The Current State of Foreclosures
IV. Issues in Conveying Registered Land
V. Questions and Discussions

Program Chair: Robert B. Foster, Esq., Rackemann, Sawyer & Brewster
