Member Benefits
  • Legislative Activity: The Section's committees work hard on legislation that we believe will benefit our practice areas as well as the clients we serve. During the legislative session, our committees track legislation and often appear before the legislature to educate lawmakers on the pros and cons of certain bills. At the end of the session, we provide members with an update on all the legislation which affects your practice area in the Members Only area of the REPTL website. Work on proposed legislation for the next legislative session begins shortly after the conclusion of each session, and members are encouraged to send suggestions for improvement to our laws to the appropriate committee chair.
  • REPTL Reporter: The REPTL Reporter provides a wealth of information to you in the form of case law updates and articles in the areas of real estate, estate planning, probate, trust, guardianship, and elder law. Issues of The Reporter are made available to members in searchable .pdf format and can be saved for future reference.
  • REPTL Leadership Academy: We graduated our first class of the Leadership Academy in May 2017. The purpose of the program is designed to encourage the active involvement and participation of young lawyers in section activities by giving them an opportunity to become involved in substantive work of the Section, by providing networking opportunities with practitioners from all over the state, by mentoring young attorneys to develop them into future leaders, and by promoting the Section through various projects and services. Eligible REPTL members may apply to be in the next Leadership Academy class with the application period opening in January of 2018 with the class beginning in August - September 2018.

These materials are available in the Members Only section of the REPTL website. The collection is fully keyword searchable and gives members constant and immediate 24/7/365 day basis access to an incredible amount of information.
