14th Annual Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference, October 12-13, 2017
Several members of Owners’ Counsel of America will be speaking at the 14th Annual Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference at the William and Mary Law School in Williamsburg, Virginia on October 12-13, 2017. The Conference is honoring University of Hawaii Law School Professor David Callies (the 2015 Recipient of OCA’s Crystal Eagle award), for his lifetime of work, both scholarly and practical, advancing the right of private property. Please join us for this exciting event.
The Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference and Prize are presented by the William & Mary Property Rights Project. Both the Conference and Prize are named in honor of the lifetime contributions made to property rights law by Florida eminent domain attorney, Toby Prince Brigham (now retired) and California appellate and condemnation attorney Gideon Kanner (also retired).
This year’s Conference will kick-off with a discussion featuring the property rights scholarship of Professor Callies in a panel titled “The Future of Land Use Regulation: A Tribute to Callies.” Panels and participants will also tackle issues relating to the civil forfeiture of property, property rights in water and the most recent Supreme Court regulatory takings decision in Murr v. Wisconsin.
This annual Conference is notable for its unique approach which includes bringing together the members of the bench, the bar and academia on Conference panels, among the participants as well as within the prize recipients (retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor was awarded the Prize in 2011 in Beijing, China and Michael Berger, a practicing appellate attorney, property rights advocate and Member of OCA received the Prize in 2014.). A complete list of previous Brigham-Kanner Prize Recipients details the other takings scholars and property rights attorneys who have been awarded the Prize.
We hope that you will join us at William & Mary Law School this October. Online registration is available here.
