Call for Papers: Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute Conference / Scholarly Workshop

The Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law is soliciting panel topics, speaker proposals, and academic papers for its 28thAnnual Western Places/Western Spaces conference, which will take place March 7-8, 2019 on the University of Denver campus.  

The Institute has, for more than 25 years, served as a forum for bringing together leading land use and environmental scholars and practitioners to think about solutions and approaches to address vexing land use, development, natural resource and local environmental problems.   This year our theme is Designing for the Future: Building Enduring Value, and we will be looking at the ways in which the quality of design informs and shapes our communities.    The deadline for submitting panel proposals is September 7, 2018.

In addition, on March 8th, the annual spring conference will include a Land Use and Environmental Scholarly Workshop, to bring together a diverse group of up to 10 scholars who are working on legal and policy issues at the intersection of land use, environmental law, and sustainability in a format designed to feature the work of emerging scholars and to foster rich discussion, academic growth, and collaboration.  Some limited funding is available to help defray travel costs, and Workshop participants may attend the entire conference at no expense.

To learn more about the conference and to submit a panel or speaker proposal, visit the RMLUI conference website.     To learn more about the Land Use and Environmental Scholarly Workshop, please contact Susan Daggett at

Graphic: How America Uses Its Land

Bloomberg recently posted a scrollable info-graphic about how America uses its land.  Well worth a look here.  Below is a screenshot, though since it's a scrollable graphic, it's best to visit the page for the whole effect.
