Tulane Law hosts property rights conference Nov. 4

November 02, 2016

Did Hurricane Katrina flooding damage amount to an unconstitutional taking of property by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers?

What are property owners’ rights when they’re affected by policies to counter coastal erosion linked to climate change?

Does the government have legitimate title to federal public lands?

When does too little regulation become a violation?

Tulane Law School hosts scholars, lawyers, government officials and advocates from across the country to explore those and other issues involving takings law on Nov. 4.

The 19th Annual Conference on Litigating Takings Challenges to Land Use and Environmental Regulations runs 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Tulane Law’s John Giffen Weinmann in the Wendell H. Gauthier Appellate Moot Court Room 110.
