N.Y. Real Property Law Journal

The N.Y. Real Property Law Journal is the official publication of the New York State Bar Association’s (NYSBA) Real Property Law Section, which “serves New York real property lawyers and the public, promotes the successful transaction of real estate business in New York State, and contributes to the sound development of real property law in New York State.” As part of its mission, the Section aims to “publish a high quality journal to keep section members informed of developments and the latest thinking in real property law.”

To this end, since the mid-1990s, students at St. John’s School of Law have provided editorial assistance to the N.Y. Real Property Law Journal. Each year, the student Editorial Board, in coordination with the Journal’s Co-Editors, prepares quarterly issues containing articles written by practitioners and law professors in the field. The articles address statutory, regulatory and administrative changes as well as New York common law. Topics include:

  • Real estate transactions
  • Zoning
  • Mortgage transactions and foreclosures
  • Leasing
  • Landlord-tenant law
  • Cooperatives and condominiums

The Journal’s current Co-Editors are:

  • Marvin N. Bagwell, vice-president and chief New York State Counsel, Old Republic National Title Insurance Company, New York, NY
  • William A.Colavito, former Senior Counsel, Liberty Title, New York, NY
  • William P. Johnson, partner, Nesper, Ferber & DiGiacomo, LLP, Amherst, NY
  • Vincent M. DiLorenzo, Professor of Law, St. John’s School of Law, Queens, NY

Section members receive print issues of the Journal by mail and can access issues online at the NYSBA website. The Journal is also the only New York State Bar Association publication available on LexisNexis.
