A Message from the Section Chair

Russell Brown

“The Real Estate and Land Use Section is dedicated to attorneys and their clients in all matters involving the acquisition, development, re-development and use of real estate. Our section serves a great cross section of the bar as real estate impacts many other areas of the law. Members of our section meet monthly to coordinate efforts in addressing the many issues real estate and land use attorneys face in these unusual times in real estate law. The section endeavors to host quarterly continuing legal education offerings focusing on issues timely to the current events impacting the real estate practice area. We always welcome input and involvement from any member of the bar who has an interest in the activities of our section. ”
