From Carol Brown, Chair of the AALS Property Section:
The Sections on Property Law and Real Estate Transactions are co-sponsoring an extended program at the 2010 AALS Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. The program theme is law as transformative agent, and the program goal is to explore the transformative potential of property law theory and property praxis in the transactional setting. The national mortgage foreclosure, credit, and housing crises have prompted re-examination of traditional categories of thinking in those areas. The Sections recognize, however, that scholarly innovation is wide-ranging, and the Sections encourage authors to take a broad view of the law as transformative agent. The Sections seek two or three papers pertaining to this subject. Papers will be presented at the program of the Sections at the 2010 AALS Annual Meeting and will be published in the Indiana Law Review.
Abstracts of one page or less should be submitted by e-mail to Lloyd T. Wilson, Jr. (Chair, Section on Real Estate Transactions) at [email protected] and to Carol N. Brown (Chair, Section on Property Law) at [email protected] by August 1, 2009. Selection will be made by the Section Chairs in consultation with Section officers. Those who submit abstracts will be notified of the Chairs’ selection by September 1, 2009. To assure timely publication, selected authors should plan to submit their papers to the Indiana Law Review by December 15, 2009. Questions should be directed to Professors Wilson or Brown at their e-mail addresses.
