Young Lawyers Network

2009 Fellows Program

The Fellows Program of the Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Section was designed to increase the participation of young lawyers in Section activities. The goal of the program is to give young lawyers an opportunity to become involved in the substantive work of the RPTE Section, while developing into future leaders. The Fellows gain a considerable amount of knowledge about the work of the Section, as well as the real property and trust and estate law practices.

The Fellowship appointment is for two years. To be considered for selection, a person (1) must have practiced in the trusts and estates or real property area for at least one year (and be younger than 36 years of age or have been admitted to the bar less than 10 years) and (2) should have demonstrated leadership at the state or local bar level or in the Young Lawyers Division of the ABA. As part of the Section's commitment to diversity, one half of the Fellows selected will be minority applicants. Each Fellow will receive an expense reimbursement budget and invitations to certain leadership events.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Hugh Drake at 217.544.8491 or by e-mail at hdrake@bhslaw.com.
