LAW 549 - Property Rights Seminar

This course focuses on the role that property rights play in society and on constitutional protection of private property. In addition to exploring the economic, social, and political roles of property, students will consider the extent to which government can regulate private property to protect the environment. Among other topics, students will explore conflicts between private property rights and public interests in the commons, including possible legal resolutions of those conflicts. Grading in this one-credit mini-course will be based on class participation and a 10 page paper.
