Megan K. Palmer"The online LLM in Real Property Development was fantastic. I really appreciated the ability to learn remotely, on my own time, while working full-time. The videos of the classes were useful because I could always replay a segment I needed to hear again to absorb the information and the professors were very responsive to e-mail."

Chris Roemer"UM's distance learning program for its Real Property Development LLM allowed me to expand my knowledge and skills on a flexible schedule while still pursuing a full-time associate job. The system used by the program was simple and allowed me to view classes on my schedule. While there is an obvious difference from taking the classes in person, the professors were all available and eager to ensure that I as a distance learner obtained the full benefit of the program."
