Event description

Description

The annual Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference is presented by the William & Mary Property Rights Project and is named in recognition of Toby Prince Brigham and Gideon Kanner for their lifetime contributions to private property rights. 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 Property Rights Conference began in 2004 at William & Mary Law School.

Each year, the conference awards the Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Prize to an individual whose work has advanced the cause of property rights and has contributed to the overall awareness of the important role property rights occupy in the broader scheme of individual liberty. This year's award recipient, Stewart E. Sterk, is the H. Bert and Ruth Mack Professor of Real Estate Law and Director of the Center for Real Estate Law & Policy at the Benjamin Cardozo School of Law of Yeshiva University in New York City. He is a thoughtful and prolific scholar whose work spans a wide variety of areas, ranging from property and land use regulation to trusts and estates, copyright, and the conflict of laws. A member of the American Law Institute, he served as an advisor in the preparation of the Restatement (Third) of Property: Servitudes. He has co–authored casebooks on trusts and estates and on land use, and he also edits the New York Real Estate Law Reporter, a monthly newsletter published with the assistance of Cardozo students.

The Conference will begin with the annual Prize Dinner honoring Stewart Sterk on Thursday, October 4th 2018 at 6:30 PM in the Great Hall of the historic Christopher Wren Building. The Conference panels will be held at the William & Mary Law School from 8:30 AM - 4:15 PM on Friday, October 5th 2018. The Conference has traditionally been approved for 4 - 6 CLE credits in Virginia. Panel and round table topics will include:

  • The Federalism Dimension of Constitutional Property

  • Background Principles of Common Law and Constitutional Property

  • Other Emerging Issues in Constitutional Protection of Property

  • Property and Social Justice

  • The Constitutionality of Land Use Exactions
