MIAMI, FL – The Advisory Board charged with helping to grow and elevate the University of Miami Law School’s Master of Laws in Real Property Development will be led by attorneys Gary Saul and Anthony De Yurre for the 2020-21 academic year. The LL.M. degree is a post-graduate option for attorneys seeking to deepen their knowledge in the real estate development realm. 

The University of Miami School of Law is one of only a handful of schools nationwide that offers a Real Property Development L.L.M. degree, affording students an opportunity to immerse themselves in the study of real estate law within one of the country’s most dynamic real estate development markets. The program is offered on campus at the University of Miami and through a distance learning option catering to recent law school graduates and practitioners around the country and internationally.

Anthony De Yurre, an alumnus of the program, is a partner in Bilzin Sumberg’s Land Development & Government Relations Practice. Together, he and Gary Saul will lead a 19-member Advisory Board comprised of members of prominent law firms, general counsels of major real estate companies, and real estate and business experts spanning banking and financial services, developers, brokerage, architecture, design, title insurance, and construction. 

De Yurre has been a member of the Advisory Board since 2017 and an Adjunct Professor of the RPD LL.M. since 2016. As a partner at Bilzin Sumberg, his practice focuses on the representation of real estate developers and investors in complex land use and zoning matters with a focus on transit-oriented development, large scale mixed-use development and public private partnerships.
