Save the date: the William & Mary Law School's Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Project has selected University of Hawaii Law Professor David L. Callies as the 2017 recipient of the Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Prize.
The Project has also announced the dates for the B-K Conference:
When: October 10-13, 2017
Where: William & Mary Law School, Williamsburg, Virginia
The 2016 Conference was held in The Hague, Netherlands, and in 2017, and as you can see, we'll be returning to Williamsburg.
The Conference starts with the traditional candlelight dinner and presentation of the Prize in the historic Wren Building, and the following day is a series of discussions about the prizewinner's work, current issues in property law, and, naturally, property rights. The speakers and attendees are legal scholars and practicing lawyers, and there is also a large contingent of law students of course.
Professor Callies will be joining a true pantheon of property scholars and practitioners including (among others) Richard Epstein, Jim Ely, Michael Berger, Frank Michelman, Carol Rose, Hernando de Soto, and Jim Krier. A truly impressive lineup, and if past practice is any guide, many prior prizewinners attend the Conference and speak.
We think the highlight of the Conference is the Wren Building dinner and award ceremony, and we post this now to encourage you to reserve your spot. Space is limited, and once it sells out, it sells out. We will post information next week about how to let William and Mary know you are coming.
