Welcome to the website of the Real Estate and Land Use (RELU) Section, one of the largest and most active sections of the Oregon State Bar. RELU members are attorneys who practice across a diverse spectrum of real estate, property, and land use matters. The section executive committee meets monthly to oversee the services provided to members, including publishing the quarterly RELU Digest, sponsoring CLEs on real estate and land use issues, monitoring legislation, proposing law improvements, and providing e-mail notices on topics of interest to members. The RELU website offers links and other resources of use to the practitioner and the public, and is a central portal for real estate and land use information. If you are not a member, but would like to join the RELU section, please click here.
