The REAL Symposium is a collaboration of the State Bar Real Property Law Section and SPIRE. Distinguished speakers will address cutting-edge business and legal issues pertaining to the real estate industry. Last year’s speakers included a major bank President, Stanford Professor of Economics, UCSF Vice Chancellor, Community Development President, as well as Executive Directors, Executive Vice Presidents, Managing Partners and Board Chairmen of California’s leading real estate firms and financiers. The REAL Symposium is designed:

  • to provide real estate professionals, academics and government personnel with critical information and perspectives from industry leaders on current and future challenges and trends;
  • to provide real estate attorneys with continuing legal education and a greater appreciation for the context in which legal services are provided; and
  • to provide real estate business professionals with current “best practices” and a greater appreciation for the legal issues involved with their properties, projects, and work.

The REAL Symposium is also designed to provide attendees with an opportunity to ask questions, to engage in meaningful discussions and to network with speakers, other leaders and attendees, both during the Symposium and at the hosted reception that follows.
