Senior Appellate Counsel Michael Berger will speak at the 19th annual Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference in a panel session titled “The Importance of Property Rights: A Tribute to James S. Burling.” The panel will discuss the boundaries of property rights and the extent to which courts and commentators disagree.
Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference is designed to bring together members of the bench, the bar and academia to explore recent developments in the law that affect property rights. The conference awards the Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Prize to an individual whose work has advanced the cause of property rights and who has contributed to the overall awareness of the important role property rights occupy in the broader scheme of individual liberty. This year, James Burling, vice president of legal affairs at Pacific Legal Foundation, will be the second practicing lawyer to receive this award, with Michael Berger having been the first.
The conference will take place in person September 29–30 at the William & Mary Law School in Williamsburg, Virginia; it will also be streamed virtually.
