    Marshall Tracht

    Marshall Tracht is the founder and Director of the LL.M. Program in Real Estate at New York Law School. His current courses include Real Estate Transactions and Finance; Bankruptcy; Workouts, Foreclosures and Bankruptcy; and Advanced Real Estate Financing. He was a tenured faculty member at the Hofstra University School of Law, where he served as Vice Dean from 2001 to 2006, before joining New York Law School in 2008.
    Professor Tracht is the author of Construction and Development Financing (3d ed. 2001) (with Alvin Arnold). He is a member of the editorial board of The Banking Law Journal, a contributing editor to the Real Estate Law Report, and has written extensively in the areas of real estate development and construction financing, workouts, and bankruptcy. His articles have appeared in the Cornell Law Review and Vanderbilt Law Review, among others, and is a recipient of the Grant Gilmore Award for excellence in legal scholarship.
    Professor Tracht has an ongoing interest in innovation in legal education, including on-line instruction, assessment practices and skills training for transactional practice. ''Traditionally, law schools have focused on litigation and regulation, not the business knowledge and the negotiation and counseling skills needed by transactional lawyers,'' he says. ''That's what we're changing.'' He has participated in numerous accreditation and site visits on behalf of the ABA and the Association of American Law Schools, and he is currently working with a committe of the ABA Section on Legal Education on a report on recent developments in law school curricula.
