Winter Conference 2020

We will begin our program with the burning issues in Marijuana law. This two-part program will address Michigan’s new laws permitting and regulating recreational marijuana and the manner in which these laws impact title companies and real estate transactions. Next, we will talk about what’s hot on international waters in Detroit with an examination of the relationship between the City of Detroit and the federal government and how the City is capitalizing on the water to create development opportunities.

Day two we turn to the dirt. We will dig into the issues surrounding urban gardens and how these gardens provided a solution to the food desert and revitalized land in Detroit. We turn from southeast Michigan to the Upper Peninsula to explore a case study of Quiet Mineral Title and the Marketable Record Title Act. We will conclude programming with a discussion of ethical traps presented to real estate practitioners by evolving technology and a review of Michigan legislation and case law essential for practicing real property law attorneys.

Please take advantage of this opportunity to learn and network with your colleagues!

The Section would like to thank Erica N. Payne, Kendricks, Bordeau, Keefe, Seavoy & Larsen for planning this program.
