The Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference

The Brigham–Kanner Property Rights Conference began in 2004 at the Marshall-Wythe School of Law at the College of William & Mary. Annually the Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference awards the Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Prize to an individual whose work has advanced the cause of property rights and has contributed to the overall awareness of the important role property rights occupy in the broader scheme of individual liberty.

In 2011 the Conference, which most years is hosted at William & Mary's Marshall-Wythe School of Law, was hosted by Tsinghua University in Beijing, China. During the 2011 Conference, which was the Eighth Annual Brigham Kanner Property Rights Conference, Retired United States Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor received the Brigham Kanner Prize. The 2011 Conference featured lectures and panel discussions by the leading property rights scholars and practitioners from China and the United States.

The Conference brings together the bench, bar, and academics on its panels. The Conference is notable for its encouragement of active participation from the audience through its question and answer segments with the leading property rights scholars and practitioners.

Beginning in 2011, the Conference began publishing the Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference Journal as a chronicle of the Conference's panels. Volume 1 features 17 articles that explore the similarities and differences of the property systems in the U.S., China, and other countries. The articles were written by leading scholars and practitioners from the U.S. and China. Articles provide a comparative analysis of legal protection of property rights and also explore topics such as the role of property in promoting social and economic policy, the impact of culture on property systems, and the relationship between property rights and the environment. Four articles reflect on Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's property rights decisions, in recognition of her receipt of the 2011 Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Prize.

The Eleventh Annual Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference will be held on October 30, 31 2014 at William & Mary's Marshall-Wythe School of Law. The 2014 recipient of the Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Prize will be Michael M. Berger of Manatt, Phelps & Phillips. Mr. Berger is the first practicing lawyer to receive the prize and is widely considered to be among the best takings lawyers in the nation. The official press release from William and Mary is available here.
