Conservation easements offer landowners a way of
realizing personal and financial objectives (preserving open space or
working farm land, securing tax deductions, minimizing the impact and
enhancing the appeal of development projects).
This program examines the conservation transaction from the point of
view of the landowner. It is intended to provide attendees with a useful
working introduction to the planning, drafting and administration of
conservation easements, with special focus on landowner concerns. It
will also give attorneys who have some experience with conservation
easements a better grasp of the major components of a conservation
transaction, the potential complexities and pitfalls, and where to turn
for assistance in dealing with specific issues.
