Delivered by Brodies top-ranked real estate department, the sessions give enthusiastic surveying professionals, from graduate level up to ten years qualified, the opportunity to extend their depth of knowledge, breadth of skills, and range of contacts, from the very start of their careers.

The training sessions are specifically designed to benefit junior surveyors who are working towards their Assessment of Professional Competence (APC).

We are now in our eighth year of running Brodies Academy - Real Estate, and the free evening seminars are held in the firm's Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen offices, and cover the legal aspects of real estate, including buying and selling investment properties and development sites, financing property deals, and planning.



Brodies Academy - Real Estate is open to surveyors from all areas of the profession - traditional surveying firms, in-house surveyors, public sector organisations, or property companies - and across all sectors - commercial, residential and rural.

The seminars are delivered by lawyers from Brodies' real estate team, which is ranked top tier by both The Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners' Guide to the UK Legal Profession.

Brodies Academy was a great addition to my training, thank you all for taking the time to provide these seminars.  I will be back to maintain my required CPD hours and definitely recommend to other new graduates.
