ALI-CLE, the good folks who put on the annual programs on Eminent Domain and Land Valuation, and Condemnation 101: How to Prepare and Present an Eminent Domain Case, have announced the dates and venue for the 2015 conferences:
Thursday - Saturday, February 5-7, 2015
Those of you who have attended or taught at these conferences in the past know they are the premier programs on this topic, and feature exciting presentations and excellent faculty.
I've been honored to be asked to serve as the Planning Co-chair of the 32d annual Eminent Domain and Land Valuation Litigation program, stepping into the able shoes of Leslie Fields, who retired last year. Joe Waldo is continuing as Planning Co-Chair. Joe and I are currently putting together the agenda and faculty for the program, and we will have more on that soon. Andrew Brigham and Jack Sperber are also hard at work assembling the next year's 101 program.
The Eminent Domain and Land Valuation Litigation program is designed for those with some familiarity with the fundamentals of eminent domain law, and is a chance to hear advanced presentations on some of the more cutting-edge issues in the area from the nation's most experienced condemnation lawyers and scholars. The 101 program is designed as an introduction to the fundamentals, and can be used to introduce lawyers new to the area to condemnation law, as a "refresher" for those who already have some experience, or as a primer before moving on to the Eminent Domain program.
Here are the 2014 agendas for the Eminent Domain and Land Valuation Litigation, and Condemnation 101 courses, to give you some idea about these conferences.
But for now, please mark your calendars and save the date so we can meet again in San Francisco.
