The Real Estate Law Society (RELS) is dedicated to educating its members about current legal practices and issues in the area of real estate law. We provide opportunities for members to satisfy their curiosity and cultivate their knowledge of the various real estate practice areas.


Our membership consists of students with a broad range of interests and work experience, including development, land use, litigation, finance, and appraisal. We strive to provide meaningful opportunities for professional and personal development.

Our organization greatly values experienced real estate law practitioners’ input and participation, and we welcome them as advisory members.

Please visit the Real Estate Law Society Blog often for updates. We provide this open forum in hopes of: (i) discussing current issues and trends affecting the current real estate law sector; (ii) distributing important information for upcoming events and providing periodic updates; and (iii) receiving member feedback so that RELS can move towards positive “smart growth.”
