Real Estate Law Section



About the Real Estate Law Section

The Real Estate Law Section keeps its members up-to-date on issues relating to real estate law. We provide many opportunities for our members to become involved and network with a diverse group of attorneys at the monthly meetings and through various working committees.

The Real Estate Law Section is one of the Bar Association’s larger sections.  The membership includes highly respected real estate practitioners throughout Northeast Ohio’s large, small and boutique law firms. Many of its members are recognized for expertise in real estate nationally through The American College of Real Estate Lawyers and The Best Lawyers in America, on the state level through Ohio Super Lawyers, and locally through Properties’ Leading Lawyers. In addition, many Section attorneys are active in or officers of various national real estate organizations and their local affiliates, such as the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), National Association of Industrial and Office Parks (NAIOP), Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), Cleveland Real Estate Women (CREW), and Greater Cleveland Real Estate Organizations (GCREO).

 

CLE Programs

The Real Estate Law Section coordinates the renowned two-day Real Estate Law Institute each fall, going into its 43rd year. We also sponsor a half-day real estate seminar each Spring.

Rosewater Award

In honor of the memory of Bob Rosewater, a former Chair of the Section, Co-Chair and an annual presenter at the Real Estate Law Institute, and Chair of the Section’s Recent Developments Committee and Model Forms Committee, his widow, Gail Rosewater, established in 2002 the “Bob Rosewater Memorial Award for Meritorious Service to the Real Estate Section of the Cleveland Bar Association.” The Section’s first award was given posthumously to Bob Rosewater.  The award is presented every year at the Real Estate Law Institute. The criteria are as follows:

  • Long-term commitment and service to the Real Estate Section.
  • Long-term commitment and service to the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association and its other sections.
  • Recognized leader and expert in her/his field.
  • Extra-ordinary accomplishments (i.e., landmark case etc.). Community service related to real estate interests (including service to other real estate organizations).
  • General community service.
