Upcoming ACRELive Webinars

May 30 @ 1:00 pm

ACRELive! MOAC (Mall of America) v. Transform Holdco

Rarely does the United States Supreme Court weigh in on real estate matters, but it recently did, and boy, it is a doozie. The Court’s recent decision of MOAC Mall Holdings LLC v. Transform Holdco LLC seems like a journey down bankruptcy technicalities until you realize it affects whether we can rely on confirmed Chapter 11 plans and whether sales or transfers out of bankruptcy estates are as ironclad as we think they are. Join us as Fellows David R. Kuney, Adjunct Professor at Georgetown Law, and Michael A. Geibelson of Robin Kaplan, LLP explain how this decision will affect your practices.


David C. Camp – Moderator, Senn Visciano Canges P.C., Denver, CO

Michael A. Geibelson – Panelist, Robins Kaplan LLP, Los Angeles, CA

David R. Kuney – Panelist, Georgetown University Law Center, Potomac, MD

ACRELive! Real Estate in the Metaverse

Many believe that “the Metaverse” is the next great revolution in technology, and will change everyday human life as much as did the World Wide Web. Cutting-edge businesses are already operating in metaverse spaces, from augmented-reality on physical properties to selling “virtual land.” But how will legal doctrines and pathways developed over the centuries to address physical real estate apply (or not) to this new concept? Will there be whole-new asset classes created by the intersection of real property law and emerging technology? And what will be the role of the real estate lawyer in the forthcoming digital future? Join in for a program unlike any other you will hear this year, as this intellectually-diverse, all-star panel discusses the ins and outs of Real Estate in the Metaverse.
