Article excerpt

On November 5-6, 2004, the William & Mary School of Law inaugurated the annual B righam- Kanner Property Rights Conference to inquire into pressing American legal questions surrounding property rights. The conference is named after Toby Prince Brigham, a founding partner of Brigham Moore, LLP, and Professor Emeritus Gideon Kanner of Loyola Law School.
