Law school to co-host seminar on Arkansas heirs’ property

The UA Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law will co-host a free Continuing Legal Education seminar about Arkansas heirs’ property on Thursday, Jan. 24, for practitioners to learn about heirs’ property issues and opportunities.

The seminar is co-sponsored by the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Small Farm Program, Arkansas Access to Justice Commission, and the UA Little Rock William H. Bowen Chapter of the Black Law Students Association. The event will take place 1-4 p.m. at UA Little Rock Downtown, 333 President Clinton Ave. in Little Rock.

Heirs’ property is real property that has been passed informally from generation to generation, leading to joint ownership among family members. In many cases, this results in clouded and fragmented titles that prevent individual family members from reaping the financial gains of the property or increasing its value and building generational wealth.

Attendees will gain an increased understanding of the problems associated with heirs’ property, preserving landowners’ property from loss, and generating wealth and economic value.

Presenters will inclue Mavis Gragg of the Gragg Law Firm; Dr. Karama Neal with Heirs of Arkansas, Professor Lynn Foster with UA Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law, and Cliff McKinney, managing member of Quattlebaum, Grooms & Tull PLLC.

This event is free to the public, but space is limited, and online registration required.
