Land Use at ALPS, part I

Well, it was a great weekend at the Association for Law, Property, & Society.  Thanks so much to Robin Paul Malloy, the other organizers, and Syracuse and Georgetown for sponsoring the event.  ALPS has very quickly become *the* place to meet other scholars in property law, and to share ideas about research.  I hope that my fellow bloggers will share their thoughts from the conference.  In the meantime, I'm going to simply report the land use papers that were presented, and if you find any of them interesting, keep an eye out for them on SSRN and/or the publications.  So here are a few of the great presentations from the first day at ALPS.  I certainly do not mean to leave out any of the other excellent papers at ALPS, but these are some of the ones I saw and/or heard about. 

Shelley Saxer: Banishment of Sex Offenders: Protectionism and the Dormant Commerce Clause

Hari Osofsky: Multidimensional Governance and the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill
