When you study law in the Center on PCSE you explore issues related to modern Real Estate Transactions and Finance; Community Development and Housing; Global Property Law Systems; and Access to Ownership for Inclusion of the Elderly, the Poor, and Persons with Disabilities. The PCSE curriculum provides you with the skills and knowledge that are essential to understanding the critical role of law in defining property, constituting markets, and fostering institutions of citizenship and governance. PCSE engages students in course work, team projects, and research opportunities in all areas of property law and theory; including real, personal, intangible, intellectual, and cultural property.  PCSE also addresses the special needs of business and of corporate counsel.  Property issues are among the most hotly contested issues in the global marketplace and PCSE offers you a front row seat.

Our curriculum is based on a belief that the modern lawyer must understand property and its regulation as part of the broader economic organization of society. This includes a need to understand relevant political, business, and financial factors.  The curriculum prepares students for a variety of opportunities, in law firms, government agencies, financial institutions, development organizations, and business, as well as for graduate studies.  Students may participate in curricular programs in Advanced Property Studies or Corporate Counsel.
