gavelWelcoming around 100 guests from America and parts of Europe, on Wednesday, August 31, 2022, the Contemporary Challenges in American and Global Law series continued with a presentation on “Guarantees for Real Estate Transfer: Notary vs. Real Estate Lawyer Professions in Polish and American Law.”

After opening remarks from Dr. Wojciech Bańczyk of JU, the group quickly delved into the day's topic. Each of the three speakers used their years of experience to provide insight into real estate transactions in both the American and Polish legal systems. Katarzyna Celewicz (CUA LL.M. 2020, CUA-UJ ALP 2019), Kraków Chamber of Notaries, and ​​Krzysztof Maj, Council of Kraków Chamber of Notaries, spoke from the Polish legal perspective and focused on the notary profession. They both emphasized that the notary’s role in real estate transactions is primarily as a representative of the state. Arthur Fuccillo ’78, Executive Vice President of Lerner Enterprises and Lerner Corporation, spoke regarding American real estate law. He walked the group through a real estate transaction as it would be executed in the U.S. drawing contrasts with the Polish notary system.
