Property Rights Project Publishes Third Conference Volume

Volume 3The William & Mary Property Rights Project announced the recent publication of the third volume of the Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference Journal. Volume 3: The Essence of Property features 10 articles that explore topics such as the contributions of Professor Thomas W. Merrill of Columbia Law School to the field of property law; promoting government forbearance; implications of the Supreme Court's recent takings cases; and property rights in times of transition.  

Project Director Lynda L. Butler, who served as the volume's editor, said the publication series grew out of the annual Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference, which has been presented annually at William & Mary Law School since 2004.  "The volume grew from the enthusiasm of participants to 'keep the conversation going' among scholars and practitioners," she said. Butler is Chancellor Professor of Law and Director of the William & Mary Property Rights Project.
