The William & Mary Law School Property Rights Project has named Professor Steven J. Eagle of the Antonin Scalia School of Law at George Mason University as the recipient of the 2019 Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Prize.

Eagle will be honored during the project’s 16th annual Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference, to be held at William & Mary Law School in Williamsburg, Va., on Oct. 3-4.

Michael M. Berger, an attorney at Manatt, Phelps & Phillips and the 2014 Brigham-Kanner Prize recipient, considers Eagle one of the finest property scholars of his generation.

“[Eagle] has devoted much of his life and his prodigious energy toward analyzing the constitutional nuances embedded in real estate law,” Berger said. “His deeply thought out analyses provide major contributions to the body of law examining and explaining the Fifth Amendment’s final (and almost forgotten) clause.  His recognition with the Brigham-Kanner Prize is well deserved.”
