Since 2004, the Conference has been a powerful force in uniting both scholarship and practice on the virtue and value associated with the civil right of private ownership.
Jacksonville, Florida (PRWEB) July 29, 2016
Jacksonville-based eminent domain lawyer Andrew Prince Brigham, principal attorney at Brigham Property Rights Law Firm, PLLC, will be a panelist at the upcoming Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference in The Hague, The Netherlands. Brigham will join fellow panelists in a discussion focused upon the relationship between private property rights, equality and freedom.
Established by the Property Rights Project of William & Mary Law School, this extraordinary international event will gather property law scholars, practitioners and members of the judiciary to discuss current topics in international takings law and property rights. The 2016 Conference will be presented in collaboration with the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies of Leiden University and will take place October 19-21, 2016 at the Peace Palace, the seat of international law, in The Hague.
Annually during the conference, the William & Mary Property Rights Project recognizes one individual for his contributions to the field of property rights scholarship. The 2016 Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Prize will go to Peruvian economist Hernando de Soto, President of the Institute of Liberty and Democracy (ILD). De Soto will be honored for his work designing and implementing legal and property rights reforms in developing nations around the world in an effort to alleviate global poverty and inequity.
The Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference and Prize are named in recognition of property rights advocates, Toby Prince Brigham, a Florida eminent domain attorney, and Gideon Kanner, a California property rights and appellate lawyer and Loyola Law School Professor Emeritus, for their lifetime contributions to the protection of private property rights.
“I look forward with tremendous enthusiasm to participate in the Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference,” said Andrew Brigham. “Since 2004, the Conference has been a powerful force in uniting both scholarship and practice on the virtue and value associated with the civil right of private ownership. This is having a profound effect on the recognition of the importance of property rights not only in the context of American jurisprudence but also overseas.”
