Prof. Odinet named to American College of Real Estate Lawyers scholars program


Prof. Chris Odinet was recently named an inaugural Real Property Scholar with the American College of Real Estate Lawyers (ACREL).

The scholars program is made possible by a generous grant from ACREL, which is the preeminent origination for real estate lawyers in the country. Its members are elected and subject to rigorous admissions standards, and they come from all areas of real estate law practice. As part of the scholars program Odinet will be given the opportunity to work collaboratively in one or more projects or presentations for ACREL and the American Bar Association’s Real Property, Trust, and Estate Law Section.

“I am thrilled to be invited to join this inaugural scholars class. ACREL is the leading organization in the United States for those who do legal work in the property sphere, so I am very humbled to be invited,” said Odinet.

Odinet is an assistant professor of law and the Horatio C. Thompson Endowed Professor at the Southern University Law Center. His scholarship is focused on consumer protection, commercial law, and real estate. He is a frequent speaker on issues related to mortgage finance, real estate, and consumer financial protection.  He is currently serving as a 2016-18 Louisiana Bar Foundation Scholar-in-Residence.
