Jennifer Slone Tobin, a partner in Shutts & Bowen LLP’s Orlando office, was recently a guest lecturer for a University of Florida Warrington School of Business course, where she discussed key business issues students should be aware of during a real estate transaction.
Presenting to undergraduate students, Jennifer guest lectured on business issues surrounding letters of intent and purchase and sale agreements for Dr. Collier’s Real Estate Investment class. Her lecture was part of a course taught by Nathan S. Collier, founder and chairman of The Collier Companies and owner of over 12,000 Apartment Homes. The class covers investment principles and financial analytics with universal application for the students to explore through the interactive case study-based course.
A lawyer, a CPA and three-time UF grad, Collier founded the University of Florida’s Nathan S. Collier Masters in Real Estate Program as well as establishing the Collier Prize for State Government Accountability in partnership with the University of Florida’s College of Journalism. The prize is awarded annually at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner; last year to the Miami Herald and this year to the LA Times; on both occasions personally by President Biden.
