Pircher Partner Presenting on UCLA RELA Panel - Oct. 15

October 2020

Pircher partner, Ariel Robinson, will be participating in an upcoming panel discussion hosted by UCLA Law’s Real Estate Law Association (RELA) on Thursday, Oct. 15. The online event will be presented in a webcast format from 12:15-1:30 p.m. Pacific Time.

Ariel will be joined by both Alicia Vaz of Cox, Castle & Nicholson LLP and Tom Muller of Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP for the conversation. The panel of industry professionals is scheduled to discuss the impacts of COVID-19 on the real estate industry, moderated by Joel Feuer, Executive Director of the Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy at UCLA Law.

UCLA Law’s RELA serves to familiarize legal students with the intersection between law and the real estate industry through targeted learning and networking opportunities. With support from the UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate, RELA works in cooperation with its sister group, the UCLA Anderson Real Estate Association, to connect students to mentors as well as potential future clients or business partners.

Since 2008, Ariel has been involved with UCLA Law, her alma mater, as Pircher’s fundraising representative for the school’s annual Law Firm Challenge. She has also been a consistent coach for Pircher’s annual Joint Venture Challenge at major universities, including UCLA. In fact, this year, Robinson coached the winning team in the firm’s inaugural inter-school competition between UCLA and USC.
