SECTION ACTIVITIES AND DEVELOPMENTS


The Real Property Section is one of the largest and most active sections of the Bar. Our section continues to sponsor high quality seminars and luncheons featuring speakers on real property and related topics. Luncheons are held at the Alta Club in Salt Lake City, Utah, each month in September, October, December, January, and April. In addition, the Section participates in the Fall Forum in November, the Midyear Convention in St. George, Utah in March, and the Summer Bar Convention in July.  The Section also sponsors a Ski & CLE in February. The Section has a Social Committee that plans fun activities throughout the year to promote comradery and friendship among members and to give members an opportunity to create a network of real property attorneys they can reach out to for help.  The Section also has an active CLE Committee that is instrumental in identifying timely topics of interest to our members and excellent and entertaining speakers to present on them.  

Each year the Chair of the Section serves on the Bar’s Governmental Relations Committee and provides input from our membership on legislation affecting real property. Perhaps the most significant of our Section’s activities is the Section’s Annual Meeting, which takes place in May.  It includes a Section business meeting, election of a new section Treasurer (who serves a four-year term, as Treasurer, then Secretary, then Vice Chairperson, and then ending as Chairperson), and updates on recent Utah Supreme Court and Utah Court of Appeals cases and new legislation affecting real property. Announcements of Section luncheons and events can be found on the Events tab and are also emailed to Section members.

Please contact any of the Section Officers if you have any comments or suggestions for the Real Property Section, would like to be a presenter or recommend one, know of a topic that would interest our members for a possible CLE, or would like to serve on the Social Committee and/or the CLE Committee.
