The ABA Section of Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Fellows Program encourages the active involvement and 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.

RPTE Fellows are assigned to work with a substantive Committee Chair, who serve as mentors and help expose them to all aspects of committee membership; get involved in substantive projects, which could include writing for a RPTE publication; become Section liaisons to the ABA Young Lawyers Division or local bar associations; become active members of the Membership Committee; and attend important Section leadership meetings.

The Section also sends a huge thank you to the 2012 selection committee: Hugh Drake, Liz Ochoa, Kathy Law, Jo Ann Engelhardt, Rana Salti, Robert Nemzin, Orlando Lucero, Gwen Allen, Marjorie Bardwell, and Eric Mathis.
