(Program to be published in Marquette Law Review)
One or more presenters were selected from a call for papers.
This program will focus on changing conceptions of property in water law. It is a tribute to Dean and Professor John E. Cribbet and will build upon his important study on Changing Concepts in the Law of Land Use, 50 Iowa Law Review 245 (1965). Changing conceptions of water in the law is a particularly relevant topic, as recent events in a variety of areas suggests that water law is undergoing significant doctrinal change within domestic (municipal, state and regional) contexts, as well as in the international arena. The program is divided into two panels. The first panel will examine both existing norms in water law and concepts in transition. The second panel will focus on concepts for the future. Each panel seeks to provoke a wide-ranging discussion on the core concepts of "water law" and how those core concepts are shifting in light of water law's increasing integration into other areas of the law, such as indigenous rights, urban planning and design, natural resources and environmental law.
