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!
