2010 Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference
The seventh annual Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference was held from September 30 to October 1, 2010, at the William & Mary Law School in Williamsburg, Virginia.

Professor Rose is the Ashby Lohse Professor of Water and Natural Resource Law, the Gordon Bradford Tweedy Professor of Law and Organization, Emeritus, and the Fred Johnson Chair in Property and Environmental Law, Yale Law School.
