About the Program

As statutes are revised and courts decide precedent-setting cases, the legal framework for conservation is constantly evolving. Clients rely on attorneys to draft conservation easements that will preserve land indefinitely. The laws that govern land conservation are intricate and during this session we will unpack the complexity of conservation easements and the like. This program seeks to encourage the development of your conservation knowledge and analysis.

You Will Learn

  • How to draft, utilize, and enforce conservation easements along with understanding the challenges in enforcing easements in perpetuity
  • About the benefits and limitations of conservation easements and issues associated with the amendment of conservation easements
  • Best practices for conservation easements

Who Should Attend

While this program is particularly relevant for land use attorneys, this program will be helpful to anyone interested in developing or increasing their knowledge in conservation easements and land conservation law.
