Established in 2004, the University of Colorado Law School's Construction and Real Estate Law Association (CRELA) exists to encourage and enable law students to contribute to, and explore, the construction and real estate industries. This may include anything related to construction law, project development and finance, affordable housing development, sustainable development, green building standards, real estate transactions, community development issues, and land planning. CRELA members work to inform students on employment and training opportunities in the construction and real estate industries and provide events that help students network and learn from practicing lawyers in the field. CRELA also works to inform students about and encourage participation in activities that can benefit the community . CRELA is dedicated to informing and inspiring students who wish to pursue construction or real estate work, in any capacity, in their future careers.
