What Leading Professionals are Saying

As a real estate litigator, the content that the Section of Litigation produces and its network of distinguished lawyers, judges, and professors across the nation keep me abreast of the most recent changes in law. The Section provides me with invaluable opportunities to read and write substantive legal material for its committees as well as hone my oral argument skills. Section leadership has been a great resource and support for me whenever I reach out to them.

Engaging with the Litigation Section has allowed me to foster deep relationships with others outside of my daily orbit. I have been able to grow my legal skills as well as my own personal perspectives by forming tight bonds with lawyers across the country. Whether it is by consuming Section newsletters and digital content, attending roundtables to grow my skillset, or gathering with other lawyers in person, I always leave inspired to be a better lawyer.
