One or more presenters were selected from a call for papers.
As scholars in the areas of property law and the law of real estate transactions, we want to explore proposals for change in property theory and praxis. The mortgage foreclosure, credit, and housing crises have prompted re-examination of established categories of legal analysis, but that analysis does not capture the breadth of innovative thinking by scholars in the academy. This program seeks to explore all approaches to property and real property transactions, including proposals that have been previously rejected as well as new ideas.
The program will include discussions of the transformative power of thinking in new categories concerning the nature and uses of property. Is it appropriate to recognize new forms of property, new interests in property, or new interest holders? How can theory transform practice? Similarly, the program will examine the transformative power of praxis. How can responses to transactional challenges serve as transformative agent? How can transactional innovations promote reflection and new theorizing?
The Real Estate Transactions and Property Law Sections will issue a joint call for papers that advance the program theme. Papers will be published in the Indiana Law Review.
