Vermont / Georgetown / UC Davis takings conference - September 19 in Davis, CA

On September 19, 2014, Vermont Law School, Georgetown University Law Center, and UC Davis Law School are hosting the 17th Annual Conference on Litigating Takings Challenges to Land Use and Environmental Regulations, in Davis, California.  Details available at http://www.vermontlaw.edu/Takings2014.

From the event website:

This conference explores the regulatory takings issue as it relates to land use and environmental regulation. In addition to offering a basic education in modern takings law, the conference brings together a diverse group of leading scholars and experienced practitioners to discuss cutting-edge issues raised by recent decisions and pending court cases. Some of the topics to be discussed include the practical implications of the Supreme Court's 5 to 4 decision in Koontz v. St. Johns Water Management District for state and local government land use standards and procedures. The conference will also address the potential effects of the Supreme Court's decision in Marvin M. Brandt Revocable Trust v. United States on the Rails to Trails program in the western United States. National experts will also discuss the new, hotly contested idea of using the eminent domain power to take over underwater residential mortgages. Other major topics will include the potential takings issues associated with water management and possible takings claims that may arise from efforts to adapt to climate change.
