    Greetings from Chicago!

    Stumbled across this forum today and it looks pretty useful, so I'm signing up! I'm about to start a JD program in Chicago having just completed an MA in Historic Preservation. Previously, I worked in politics/government relations, so I am undergoing a bit of a career pivot. As you might guess, I want to pursue a career in real estate/land use law and possibly get into development down the road. My first passion is historic preservation, but I am interested in urban planning in general.

    I imagine I'll mostly lurk for now, but I am interested in learning more about real estate/land use/planning law or transitioning from law to development, if anyone would be so kind as to point me in the direction of threads covering those topics. Thanks!

    Hello, from Dallas, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
