Please join this month's Professors' Corner webinar on:
When Dirt and Death Collide: Cemetery Law and the Real Estate Lawyer”
The Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Section is sometimes referred to as consisting of two parts—dirt (real property law) and death (trust and estate law). The September Professors' Corner focuses on the place where dirt and death law literally intersect—the law of cemeteries. Although few attorneys practice "cemetery law," most real estate attorneys have confronted issues regarding the presence of human remains in marked or unmarked graves. This Professors' Corner is intended to provide an overview of the structure of the legal landscape to better prepare attorneys to confront these issues.
Tanya Marsh, the author of "The Law of Human Remains" (2015) and "Cemetery Law" (2015), will outline the structure of cemetery law in the United States. Ryan Seidemann, a trained archaeologist and Assistant Attorney General in Louisiana, will discuss the laws governing the discovery of human remains and the obligations of property owners with respect to those remains. Dean Alterman has encountered cemetery law issues many times during his career and will discuss non-cemetery uses in cemeteries, including cell towers and easements, and issues with regulators and customers.
Our speakers will include: Professor Tanya D. Marsh, Wake Forest University School of Law, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Dean N. Alterman, Partner, Folawn Alterman & Richardson LLP, Portland, Oregon, and Ryan M. Seidemann, Assistant Attorney General, Section Chief - Lands & Natural Resources, Civil Division - Louisiana Department of Justice, Baton Rouge, Louisiana
