With some 20 books and more than 90 articles on property and land use and eminent domain topics to his credit, Professor David L. Callies of the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa William S. Richardson School of Law ranks among the foremost experts on property rights.

And as of October 12, he’s also the recipient of the 2017 Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Prize from the William & Mary Law School Property Rights Project.

Callies received the award during the opening dinner of the annual Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference at William & Mary Law School. Now in its 14th year, the conference brings together members of the bench, bar and academia to explore recent developments in the law that affect property rights.

“One of the best barometers of the wisdom of our decision is the reaction of your peers,” Professor Lynda L. Butler said when introducing Callies during the dinner. “I can tell you that I’ve received countless messages from the right and the left and the in-between applauding our choice of you as the next Brigham-Kanner recipient. We are deeply honored that you are here to receive the prize.”
