Inaugural Volume of the Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference Journal Published

The William & Mary Law School Property Rights Project recently announced the publication of the inaugural volume of the Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference Journal.  This inaugural volume of the Journal reflects upon the 2011 Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference which was held in Beijing, China  during which the Brigham-Kanner Price was bestowed upon Justice sandra Day O’Connor.  The inaugural volume features 17 articles from both American and Chinese scholars and practitioners all of whom participated as panelists in the 2011 Conference.

Lynda L. Butler, Chancellor Professor of Law and Director of the Property Rights Project at William & Mary Law School is the editor of the Journal.  “Our goal for the 2011 Conference was to promote understanding of the property rights systems of different countries and to shed light on the common attributes of property systems in complex societies,” she said.  “This inaugural volume is an effort to extend the discussion to a wider international audience.”  The Conference Journal will contain the proceedings of the Conference, as well as, select non-conference articles.

The Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference, Prize and Journal are named in honor of OCA Members Toby Prince Brigham and Gideon Kanner for their lifetime contributions to the law of private property rights, for advancing constitutional protections for property rights, and for their accomplishments in preserving the important role property ownership plays in protecting individual freedom.  Mr. Brigham is a Florida attorney who has dedicated his more than 40 years of practice to representing the private property owners in eminent domain, inverse condemnation and related property rights litigation.  Mr. Kanner is a Professor of Law Emeritus at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles and has practiced eminent domain, inverse condemnation, regulatory takings and appellate law for over 40 years.  Professor Kanner is currently Of Counsel at Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP in California.

Annually, the Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference brings together members of the bench, bar and academia to explore recent developments in takings and property law and awards the Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Prize to a scholar for his or her legal scholarship in the law of property rights.  The 2012 Conference was held on the campus of William & Mary Law School in Williamsburg, Virginia October 11 & 12.  For more about the 2012 conference see our previous post here.

The Conference Journal is published by the Property Rights Project and is available for subscription at the price of $15 per volume.  Subscription requests can be sent to Jan Abbott (jgabbo@wm.edu) at the William & Mary Journal Center.  The Journal will be available on the Property Rights Project website this Winter.
