Real Estate Law & Practice Section MCLE  Meeting



Speakers:  Richard F. Bales, Chicago Title Insurance Company

Topic Summary: To many people, "legal descriptions" is an arcane area of real estate law that is virtually impenetrable to the lay person.

But it does not have to be this way. Dick Bales has developed a revolutionary new way to teach the basics of understanding legal

descriptions, including metes and bounds legal descriptions. Dick has written and illustrated a comprehensive guide to his system.

He has constructed wooden props or visual aids that help to reinforce the principles of his system.


Learning Objectives:

1. To understand the basics of legal descriptions, including metes and bounds legal descriptions.

2. To read a metes and bounds legal descriptions and be able to mentally visualize the direction of the courses of the description.

3. To talk more confidently with surveyors about legal description issues.
