He contributed to and edited the department’s accompanying practice training manual. He was qualified by the State of Michigan to lecture and provide educational materials to real estate brokers seeking to satisfy continuing education licensing requirement. Professor Hurvitz has been a frequent lecturer, panelist, and roundtable participant at various industry seminars, workshops, meetings, and conferences. He has also been retained by clients to educate their employees regarding various aspects of real estate law.
