One of our own, Bob Stroup II stepped down as chair from the Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section of the State Bar Association of North Dakota (SBAND) in December. We are proud of the work Bob has contributed to the committee over the years. Read on to learn about SBAND and Stroup’s involvement.
What is SBAND?
Founded in 1899, SBAND promotes justice and serves lawyers and people of North Dakota by supporting programs that improve the level of education and lawyer standards. They protect and preserve North Dakota legal history, and they encourage public service by lawyers and others involved with the justice system. The SBAND also supports civil legal services for the poor, provides public education about the law, and strives to improve the administration of justice.
A Strong Leader
Bob Stroup II has been a member of SBAND since the early 1970’s, and started as chair to the Real Property, Probate and Trust Section in 1988. During his time as chair, one of the most significant efforts the committee made was adopting a title standards practice guide in 2000.
Stroup expresses his excitement for the new practice guide, saying that, “This was new for North Dakota and was fashioned after what Minnesota has done. It is a great resource for all lawyers in the state, giving them guidance and more information on real estate and probate issues.”
Bob currently practices at our law firm in Fargo. We’re proud of Bob and all of his hard work as chair on this important committee.
