Here's the final program and faculty list for the 2015 Hawaii Land Use Conference, coming up Thursday and Friday, January 15-16, 2015, in downtown Honolulu.
This is the bi-annual gathering of Hawaii's land use mavens, and this year's program has two very special presenters. Storied lawprof Richard Epstein (perhaps more than a "mere mortal") will be presenting the keynote talk on "Stealth Takings: Exactions, Impact Fees and More," and our ABA colleague Patty Salkin, Dean of the Touro Law School, will get us our Ethics CLE credits with her usual exciting program on ethics topics. (As someone who has attended more than few of her presentations, we can report that it is worth the price of admission alone, and even though "ethics CLE" and "exciting" are words we usually do not associate with each other, Dean Salkin's presentation is the exception.)
Our panel on "Impact Fees and Exactions After Koontz" follows immediately after Professor Epstein's talk. The remainder of the agenda is equally good: transit-oriented development, GMO's, Endangered Species Act, form-based zoning, and more. If you are a Hawaii Land User, you shouldn't miss this.
The registration cost is the best value in CLE, a mere $200 for members of the Hawaii State Bar Association's Real Propertyand Financial Services Section and government attorneys, and $300 for everyone else.
There's still room, so please come and join us.
