Land Use at ALPS, part II
As I mentioned and as Jim also noted, the ALPS conference was great; my objective here is to list some of the afternoon first-day panels that blog readers might be interested in thinking about and watching for the articles. So here goes:
Jessica Owley: Enforceability of Exacted Conservation Easements
Sarah Schindler: Abandoned Big Box Stores: Legal Solutions to the Legacies of Poor Planning Decisions
Marc Roark: Property at Law's End: How Instincts Towards Private Property Transcend Towards Non-Entitlements--Memory and Identity
Jim Kelly: Diversity in Land Trust Governance Structure: Comedy of the Anticommons?
Kenneth Stahl: Ambiguities of Neighborhood Empowerment
ALPS Day One ended with a terrific plenary session on the new book Integrating Spaces: Property, Law, & Race, with authors Al Brophy, Kali Murray, and Bernadette Atuahene and Kenneth Mack.
I don't think we're quite done talking about exactly where "land use" fits in to the academic disciplinary categories of "property" and/or other areas such as environmental law, local government, etc. But Jessica certainly advanced the discussion in her marvelous guest-blogging stint. As land use/property profs we ought to keep talking about it.

Thanks for the shout out.
I was really impressed by the showing of land use profs at the conference. It made me realize that I had been asking the wrong question when I wondered whether land use profs = environmental law profs. It appears that all land use profs = property profs! Are there any folks on this list, for example, that don't teach property?
The conference was great. The highlight for me was Tom Mitchell's presentation in the very last session, so those of you who snuck out earlier missed something "magical" (as Antonia Layard described it).
