Te ABA Real Property Trust & Estate Section is committed to becoming the most open and inviting group in the American Bar Association. We welcome members from all backgrounds, experiences, and walks of life.
The goal of the Diversity Committee is to help make that a reality - for this Section to meet it commitment to the ABA, the legal profession, and the public we serve.
Goal III of the American Bar Association, was adopted in 2008. It prioritizes the promotion of "full and equal participation in the Association, our profession, and the justice system by all persons" and to eliminate bias in those areas. The Association's Goal IX promotes full inclusion of all people, while specifically mentioning historically underrepresented groups such as women, minorities, persons with disabilities, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons.
Our Real Property, Trust & Estate Section aims to create a stronger and better Section through implementation of the goals and initiatives outlined in its Diversity Committee's Strategic Plan approved in 2014.
