Registration is now open for the 2015 Hawaii Land Use Law Conference, to be held in downtown Honolulu on Thursday-Friday, January 15-16, 2015.
This is the bi-annual conference, co-chaired by U. Hawaii lawprof David Callies and land use lawyer Ben Kudo, that brings together the big names in our area of law. In other words, the one conference you don't want to miss if you are a Hawaii land use or property lawyer, in-house counsel, a planner, an appraiser, a property owner or manager, or a law student interested in these topics.

The keynote speaker this year is lawprof Richard Epstein, addressing "Stealth Takings: Exactions, Impact Fees and More." Immediately following his talk, I will be moderating a panel on "Impact Fees and Exactions After Koontz," with colleagues Bruce Voss and David Brittin. The rest of the two-day agenda is equally interesting:
- State Districts/Boundary Amendments
- Native Hawaiian Rights
- Transit Oriented Development
- Critical Habitat Designation under the Endangered Species Act
- Legislative Update
- Form-Based Zoning
- GMO Regulation, Preemption, and Home Rule
We finish strong, with our ABA State and Local Government Law Section colleague Dean Patty Salkin of the Touro Law School, getting us those critical ethics credits. More details on the agenda and faculty here.
This just might just be the best deal in CLE: course registration fees for the two-day program start at $200 for RPFSS members, and government lawyers. There are many ways to join us:
Sponsored by the Hawaii State Bar Association's Real Property and Financial Services Section and the University of Hawaii Law School.
Look forward to seeing you there.
