Brigham Kanner Property Rights Conference Starts with Great Student Program Today
Today, an excellent Student Program started off the Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference at William & Mary law school. Named in recognition of Toby Prince Brigham and Gideon Kanner for their lifetime contributions to private property rights and their efforts to advance constitutional protection of property, the conference began in 2004 and continues to this day. The conference is designed to bring together members of the bench, bar, and academia to explore recent developments in the law that affect property rights. The Brigham Kanner Prize is awarded each year to an individual whose work affirms that property rights are fundamental to protecting individual liberty. For 2022, the Prize will be given to James Burling, Vice President of Legal Affairs at the Pacific Legal Foundation.
