Real Property & Real Estate

Property law is a field that encompasses a broad array of practice areas and opportunities. The primary areas of focus for property attorneys are real estate and land use law. Property law can also intersect with many other practice areas, including environmental and energy law. Legal work in this field is heavily transaction-based, but some attorneys choose to focus on dispute resolution. Attorneys may work for large law firms, small firms, or as solo practitioners. Additionally, property law offers a broad array of career opportunities at all levels of government and with public interest groups.
