The Real Property, Trust, and Estate Law (RPTE) section of the American Bar Association (ABA) sponsors a fellowship program designed to encourage young lawyers to become actively engaged in the section. The program seeks to develop these men and women into future leaders by involving them in substantive work occurring within RPTE. To accomplish this, RPTE fellows are paired with a committee chair who serves as their mentor. The mentor maintains an obligation to expose the fellow to all aspects involved in committee membership. Additionally, fellows are involved in various RPTE projects of import: writing for RPTE publications, attending leadership meetings, becoming section liaisons, and becoming engaged members of the Membership Committee are some of the tasks fellows may undertake. For the 2017-19 bar years, the following individuals have been selected to represent the RPTE section as Trust & Estate Fellows: Abigail Rosen, Caryn Friedman, Danielle Kincaid, Kelly Perez, and Jordan Veurink.
