Registration is now open for the 2017 Hawaii Land Use Conference, presented by the Hawaii State Bar Association and the University of Hawaii Law School, at the downtown Honolulu YWCA's Fuller Hall on Jnauary 19-20, 2017. "This 2 day conference is a must attend for any attorney or professional whose practice involves land use and development," as the registration web site says (we agree).
Topics include the latest in Transit-Oriented Development, the Thirty Meter Telescope, GMO (including the recent rulings from the Ninth Circuit), and the topic we'll be presenting, "Takings: Regulatory and Physical."
The final agenda has not yet been released, but if experience is any guide, Planning Chair Professor David Callies will put together two days of timely topics, presented by distinguished faculty.
And the cost can't be beat: $200 for members of the Real Property and Financial Services Section and government lawyers, $300 for other HSBA members, and $325 for everyone else.
Members of the HSBA can register on line, while others need to do so on paper here or below.
We'll post more when the agenda and faculty list is finalized. In the meantime, reserve your space, because this conference is only held once every two years, and as a consequence, the room fills up quickly.
