    This program examines "heirs property," a term connoting the devolution of land within families without benefit of probate or deeds. Occuring largely in the South, and largely among African-American families, heirs property has been the subject of opportunistic acquisition by outsiders who acquire small factional interests, and then use partition by sale to acquire the rest. While some descendants of the original owners live on the family "home place," many others are undetermined and difficult to locate. Family members often lack educational or financial resources to obtain fair resolutions of the tugs of family needs and interests of developers. The ABA has worked with groups aiding families to deal with these problems, and partly through its efforts the Uniform Law Commission recently has promulgated the "Uniform Partition of Heirs Property Act" (UPHPA) which already has been adopted in several states.
