This course will cover the full lifespan of a mortgage. The course will be broken into three parts: creation and securitization, default and foreclosure, and post-foreclosure deficiency rights. Each week one day will be dedicated to the learning of the law in the applicable area, and the second day will be devoted to practical application in a "real world" lab setting. In the lab, students will practice reviewing, negotiating and drafting mortgages, processing and fighting foreclosures, and preparing complaints and motions regarding California deficiency rules. Grading will be based on three multiple choice examinations at the end of each part, work product generated in the lab, and classroom participation.
