Publishing & Other National Profile-Raising Opportunities
The Journal of Real Estate, Condemnation and Trust Litigation
Please also consider writing an article or a practice point or referring us to lawyers who may be interested in publishing in our national newsletter and online journal. Publishing is a great way for lawyers of all vintages to build or expand their resumes or to showcase their expertise. One of our committee’s key missions is to deliver high-quality content, such as articles or practice points, to the general Litigation Section’s membership. Please check out our recently released edition of The Journal of Real Estate, Condemnation, and Trust Litigation.
Roundtables and Sound Advice Programming
Our committee is also responsible for delivering Roundtables and Sound Advice programs for Section members. Roundtables are free, national telephone seminars that are typically one hour in length and can touch on a wide variety of substantive and practice topics, often featuring a panel of subject matter experts. Sound Advice programs are short, pre-recorded podcasts that focus on several different areas—from substantive legal issues to practice pointers to diversity discussions, for example. The podcasts are then featured nationally on our website and in our newsletter.
The Section is always looking for substantive and practice-focused national CLE webinar content as well. Check out past webinars our committee has hosted.
Our Condemnation team has been working on a book project, a 50-state survey of condemnation laws. Richard Rodriguez has been spearheading this project. The book is close to being completed, except for several remaining chapters/states. Please reach out if you are interested in helping complete this project and adding a book chapter to your publishing portfolio. Please also send in any other book ideas that you may have.
Join us at the ABA Litigation Section Annual Conference (SAC), May 4–6, 2022, in Miami Beach, FL, for our live CLE program, “Ethical Issues in Pro Bono Representation and Pro Bono in a Pandemic and Post-Pandemic World: Ensuring Success and Stability for Residents and Businesses of Underinvested Diverse Communities.”
Committee Networking Opportunities
Our committee has traditionally rallied at ABA conferences, such as the Litigation Section Annual Conference or the broader ABA Annual Conference, with committee outings to sporting events and committee dinners. We look forward to getting back to in-person events this bar year.
Monthly Zoom Meetings
The Committee meets monthly via Zoom on the second Monday of each month at 3:00 p.m. Central. Please contact us for the Zoom link if you would like to join us to learn more about our initiatives and activities for this year.
