Land Use Institute

12th Annual Conference on

Litigating Regulatory Takings Challenges
Land Use and Environmental Regulations

Friday, November 6, 2009

This conference explores the regulatory takings issue as it relates to land use and environmental regulation. The conference brings together a diverse group of leading scholars and experienced practitioners to discuss the cutting edge issues raised by recent and pending court cases and new regulatory initiatives.

Some topics to be discussed include the intersection of the takings issue with potential government responses to climate change, and how the Takings Clause applies to regulation of asserted property interests in water. One of the highlights of this year's conference will be a discussion of Stop the Beach Renourishment, which will be argued in the U.S. Supreme Court later this year. Critical and emerging questions in the development of modern regulatory takings doctrine will also be explored in depth.

Cost of admission is $35 for the general public, $200 for 7 VBA CLE credits, and free for VLS faculty, staff and students. Cost includes a continental breakfast, lunch and afternoon coffee reception.
