Real Property Law

Cal. Real. Prop. Journal 2019, VOL. 37, NO. 1

Message from the Editor-in-Chief

Misti M. Schmidt

I’m pleased to take the helm of the California Real Property Law Journal and continue the Real Property Law Section’s decades-long tradition of providing practical, thoughtful articles on the myriad real property issues facing practitioners in California today. In this issue, we’re proud to offer our annual overviews of case and legislative developments in 2018, as well as a fresh piece on gender bias in the profession (for which you can obtain MCLE credit in the sometimes-hard-to-find Bias category), and a timely discussion of the Full Credit Bid Rule in the context of the California wildfires.

We hope you enjoy these substantive pieces and that you have a laugh at our newest feature: Richard Witkin and Bella Roscigno’s Lien Times cartoon, a comedic look at real property law, on page 54. In the drawing, you’ll see an Easter egg reference to Kohl v. U.S., the United States Supreme Court’s first inverse condemnation opinion, issued in 1875. Thank you to all of our authors for contributing to our Section’s knowledge base and to our comedic duo for providing some cheer and a reminder that lawyers can be funny, too.

Looking forward, the next Journal issues will have intellectual property and tax focuses, respectively—as those topics intersect with real property law, of course. While our article submittal deadline has passed for the intellectual property issue, we are still soliciting articles with a tax focus for Issue 3 and general articles going forward. Each year, submittal deadlines are February 15 (Issue 1), May 15 (Issue 2), August 15 (Issue 3), and October 15 (Issue 4) and we have brilliant editors standing by to help you put the finishing touches on your work.
