William & Mary Law School will be hosting the Seventh Annual Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference on Thursday, Sept. 30th and Friday Oct. 1st. This year's honoree is Prof. Carol Rose of Arizona and Yale. Scheduled presenters include past honorees such as Robert Ellickson and James Ely as well as other leading property scholars including Jedediah Purdy, Henry Smith, Michael Heller, Thomas Merrill and Laura Underkuffler.

The annual Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference is presented by the W&M Property Rights Project and the Institute of The Bill of Rights Law. It is named in recognition of Toby Prince Brigham and Gideon Kanner for their lifetime contributions to private property rights. Now in its seventh year, the conference is designed to bring together members of the bench, bar and academia to explore recent developments in takings law and other areas of the law affecting property rights. During the conference, the Project presents the Brigham-Kanner Prize to an outstanding figure in the field. Previous recipients of the Brigham-Kanner Prize include Professor Frank I. Michelman of Harvard Law School (2004), Professor Richard A. Epstein of the University of Chicago Law School (2005), Professor James W. Ely, Jr. of Vanderbilt Law School (2006), Professor Margaret Jane Radin of the University of Michigan Law School (2007), Professor Robert C. Ellickson of Yale Law School (2008) and Professor Richard E. Pipes of Harvard University (2009).

Rogers College of Law at the University of Arizona will be honored with the 2010 Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Prize.
