Duke Symposium on Judicial Takings

This Friday, I will be speaking at a symposium on judicial takings at Duke Law School, sponsored by the Duke Journal of Constitutional Law and Public Policy. The symposium is open to both students and the public, and the schedule is available here. Among the other participants are leading property and constitutional law scholars such as Richard Epstein, Jedediah Purdy, Nestor Davidson, William Marshall, and Ernest Young.

The issue of judicial takings was of course recently addressed by the Supreme Court in the Stop the Beach Renourishment case, albeit without any clear decision. I commented on the case here.
