— Jacob Frydman, a property expert and consultant widely recognized as a leading analyst of trends in both the New York City and national real estate markets, has appeared as a guest numerous times on Bloomberg TV, Fox Business News, CNBC and other programming, and is often asked to discuss promising investment opportunities on-air. He sees the current trend as upward in commercial real estate, where the optimism is being fueled by industry-focused technology and large amounts of investment from outside the United States. Jacob Frydman, like the majority of experts, believes that the recent influx of technology will impact commercial real estate (CRE) in a positive way. He notes that CRE technology firms will undoubtedly have an impact on four areas of the industry: leasing data and workflow platforms, “open source” data exchanges, advanced analytics platforms, and online marketplace solutions. In a Forbes Insights survey of 201 senior executives at CRE firms, 55 percent agreed that technology is revolutionizing their industry. Half of the respondents said they are already benefiting from the latest CRE-focused technology, yet only 11 percent rated themselves as “leading edge” in the area of implementing that technology. The survey was conducted between February 12 and March 14 of this year. An additional challenge facing CRE analysts is that the industry is becoming more globalized. The firm CBRE Research estimates that investments valued at $9.0 billion and $9.4 billion, from China and the Middle East respectively, were made into the U.S. commercial real estate market in 2015, and a similar volume is expected this year. This movement of capital coincides with a recent change in U.S. tax laws that will give qualified foreign pension plans more favorable tax treatments for investing in Real Estate Investment Trusts. Jacob Frydman, retired from his role as CEO of a public Real Estate Investment Trust, is better positioned than most to analyze these developments, especially as the CRE industry changes rapidly and becomes increasingly complex. Jacob Frydman has over 30 years of experience in structuring, financing and executing highly complex real estate transactions, valued at more than $2 billion. Notable achievements of his career include Two Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza, an office tower in midtown Manhattan used by foreign governments for their missions to the United Nations, and redeveloping the Aetna Building in lower Manhattan’s financial district. Frydman has been a guest lecturer on real estate finance at Columbia University and in the Master’s Lecturer series sponsored by New York Law School. An avid philanthropist, he is a firm supporter of Chabad of Dutchess County, the Brem Foundation to Defeat Breast Cancer, and other organizations. He generously dedicates much of his time and capital to programs aimed at helping people in struggling communities, and is proud to have recently joined the National Committee for Furtherance of Jewish Education (NCFJE) in support of its Released Time program of Greater New York.

— New York native and real estate entrepreneur, Jacob Frydman proudly joined the National Committee for Furtherance of Jewish Education (NCFJE) to offer support to its Released Time program of Greater New York. Devoted to his Jewish heritage and continuing his philanthropic efforts, Frydman dedicates much of his time and capital to various organizations and programs aimed at helping people in struggling communities. The Released Time program helps Jewish youth in public schools by educating them about the history, customs, and prayers of Judaism. Since its creation in 1941, NCFJE’s initiative has inspired more than a quarter of a million Jewish boys and girls in New York City, Rockland County, Long Island, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New England, Ohio, Pennsylvania and California to discover the history of their heritage. The program has expanded and now services more than 125 sites in the New York City area. Throughout the year, each Wednesday afternoon during the last hour of school, dedicated instructors instill the joy of Judaism and create a warm atmosphere of religion and acceptance for over 900 students currently enrolled in the program. The classes are available at every public school in New York, free of charge. Rabbi Hanoch Hecht of The Rhinebeck Jewish Center was the one who introduced Frydman to this initiative and continues to praise Frydman for his sustained commitment and the work he is doing for the community. Jacob Frydman understands the importance of reaching out to young people and believes it is imperative that children within the Released Time program, who come from households that experience a range of economic and social hardships, are nurtured just as attentively as any other. Not a stranger to making a difference in the lives of the new generation, in 2013 Jacob founded a scholarship fund, helping countless American students gain access to higher education and inspiring them to reach their full potential. The program awarded $100,000, over three years, to students who best answered the question, “How Do I Invest in My Future?” Over his 30-year career, Jacob Frydman made a positive and lasting impression with the real estate investment industry. Through his vast experience in structuring, financing, and executing highly complex real estate transactions, he has acquired over five million square feet of American property and has participated in investments valued at over $2 billion.

"The great work they do to improve access to legal education for historically underrepresented students and to keep all students abreast of the financial realities of law school is critical and much needed. This makes them an excellent partner for us in hosting our outreach events."These informational and networking conferences are designed to empower future lawyers from diverse backgrounds by providing them with invaluable information and resources they may not otherwise have access to, as well as opportunities to make connections with lawyers, law students, administrators and other achievement-oriented peers - before they even apply to law school. In addition, these events also provide participants with the chance to hear from keynote and special guest speakers, attend panel discussions and workshops, take part in optional law school tours, law school classes and Law School Admission Test (LSAT) practice exams, participate in one-on-one practical assistance and consulting sessions, and attend law school and resource fairs – all at no cost to them."AccessLex Institute is honored to become the title sponsor of these very important outreach events," said Lyssa Thaden, Ph.D., AFC®, Managing Director, AccessLex Center for Education and Financial Capability.

This workshop will bring together a diverse international and interdisciplinary group of practitioners, scholars in both law and social science, and innovative law teachers with expertise in the processes of transition to democracy; globalization and law; the role of constitutional courts; law and social movements; legal pluralism and customary law; economic and social rights; and the impact of legal education on legal professions and law. Its broader impacts include fostering deeper connections between American and South African scholars, assisting South African lawyers and social scientists in protecting human rights, and building awareness in the United States both of the challenges South Africa faces and of the contributions to democratic and legal thinking that it is making.

The workshop will be a sustained series of structured discussions around five core themes: judicial independence; the potential, limits and pitfalls of judicial intervention; culture, tradition, public resistance and elite pressure in the assertion of rights; public interest law; and socioeconomic rights and restitution. Papers will be submitted in advance and made available to other presenters on a workshop website, which will also serve as a resource for additional relevant readings and materials. Each theme will be introduced with a plenary session, followed by small-group meetings around particular issues bearing on that theme, and culminating in a report-back session. Summaries of each sessions discussions will be posted on the workshop website. Panels will be designed to bring together socio-legal and legal scholars, legal educators, and practitioners. It will include participants who are from under-represented groups and who are early-career scholars and students.
