About RPTE

The ABA Section of Real Property, Trust and Estate Law (RPTE) consists of over 20,000 members, including lawyers, associate professionals, and law students. RPTE is a unique section comprised of two divisions: real property law and trust and estate law. The Section provides members a variety of opportunities for education and networking both nationally and at local state levels and works to promote high standards of professional competence and ethical conduct.
