The RPTE Fellowship Program


The RPTE Fellowship Program

The RPTE Fellowship Program 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 of the Section. The Fellows will gain a considerable amount of knowledge about the work of the Section, as well as real property, trust and estate laws.

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 areas 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. A Fellow will receive an expense reimbursement budget and invitations to certain leadership events.

For a full description of a Fellow’s role and responsibilities, please visit this page. Applications are due by June 20, 2008. Fellows will be notified of their appointment by early July. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Steve Gorin at 314-552-6151 or by e-mail at sgorin@thompsoncoburn.com.
