ALPS Call for Papers

The Association for Law, Property, and Society (ALPS) has quicky become THE place to be each year for the leading conference on property, land use, and real estate, as well as environmental law and local government.  Hari Osofsky has posted the Call for Papers for this year's 4th Annual Meeting in Minneapolis in April. 

The ALPS 4th Annual Meeting,, will be
held at University of Minnesota Law School, April 26-27, 2013. Our annual meetings attract
over 100 participants, approximately one third of whom come from outside of North America and
a number of whom do interdisciplinary work.

Registration and paper/panel submission is available through the conference website or directly at The deadline for
submitting papers and panels is March 1, 2013, but registration for the conference will continue
to be available after that date. Please do not submit papers and panels after March 1, 2013 as part
of your registration without having emailed Hari Osofsky, [email protected] for permission to
submit late. We will do our best to accommodate late submission requests, but can only
guarantee that proposals submitted by the March 1, 2013 deadline will be able to be considered
for the conference.

This year’s registration includes an option to register to attend without presenting and an option
to submit complete panels in addition to individual papers. As in previous years, we will have
both draft paper panels and early works-in-progress panels dedicated to brainstorming scholarship
at its beginning stages. We also plan to support early-career scholars in their development and in
connecting to mentors through the conference events. A discounted early registration rate of
$145 is available until March 1, 2013; after that date, the registration rate is $175.

We welcome papers on any subject related to property law and from a diversity of viewpoints.
Property related topics areas can include but are not limited to:
· Civil Rights & Inequality (including Race, Gender, Religion, Income, Disability,
etc)/Critical Legal Studies
· Economics and Property Law
· Energy/Environment/Climate Change
· History of Property
· Housing/Urban Development/Mortgages and Foreclosure
· Indian Law/Indigenous Rights Law
· Intellectual Property
· International Property Law/Human Rights and Property/Cultural Property
· Land Use Planning/Real Estate/Entrepreneurship
· Property and Personhood/Concept of Home
· Property Theory
· Takings and Eminent Domain
· Teaching Property

The ALPS 4th Annual Meeting has been planned to immediately follow a conference on Legal
and Policy Pathways for Energy Innovation on April 24 and 25, 2013,, sponsored by the
University of Minnesota’s Consortium on Law and Values in Health, Environment & the Life
Sciences. That conference also is currently accepting paper and panel proposals and offers
discounted registration to ALPS conference participants.
We look forward to welcoming you to Minnesota!

ALPS really is the place to be for any scholar connected with property and land use.  On behalf of the membership & outreach committee, we hope to see all of you there!
