Real Estate Law Section

Monitors and reports on judicial, legislative and other developments that affect the practice of real estate law. The goal of the section is to promote, clarify and educate members concerning issues arising in Colorado real estate law. The section keeps its members informed through quarterly real estate newsletters, special columns in The Colorado Lawyer, and numerous legal education programs, including approximately six workshops per year, quarterly topical luncheons and an annual symposium that provides a unique opportunity to learn and to renew acquaintances with fellow real estate lawyers. All Colorado lawyers with an interest in real estate can benefit from joining this section.
