Professor Durham Named National Fellow

The American College of Real Estate Lawyers has named University of Dayton School of Law Professor James Geoffrey Durham a fellow for his outstanding legal ability, experience, and high standards of professional and ethical conduct in the field of real estate law.

There are only 960 fellows nationwide and just 29 in Ohio.

"I am thrilled by this honor, which is the highest level of peer recognition a real estate lawyer can receive," Durham said.

As a fellow, Durham will participate in national programs advancing the field of real estate law.

Durham, who also is the director of faculty research at the School of Law, has practiced or taught law for 40 years. He serves on the governing council of the 22,000-member Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Section of the American Bar Association and chaired the Ohio Supreme Court's Commission on Certification of Attorneys as Specialists. He is a co-author of a treatise on Ohio real property law and a law school textbook for use in advanced real estate transactions classes.
