Write On! Upcoming inaugural meeting of the Association for Law, Property & Society

(Write On! is an occasional item about notable calls for papers.) Syracuse Law Professor Robin Paul Malloy has spearheaded an effort to create the Association for Law, Property, and Society (ALPS), which will hold its first annual meeting on March 5-6, 2010, at Georgetown Law School in Washington, D.C. Save the date.
Topics will include all areas of property (real, personal, intangible, cultural, and intellectual property), and themes will center on Property and issues related to Entrepreneurship, Development, Identity, Takings, Sovereignty, Finance, Mortgage Markets, Securitization, Environment, Sustainability, Land Use, Patents, Copyright, Trade Secrets, Internet, and the concept of Home. While all types of paper topics are welcome and encouraged, two particular themes are being developed for book publications. These two themes are:
► Property, Identity, and Sovereignty; and
► Property and Entrepreneurship.
Individual paper proposals or session proposals for a panel composed of three to four paper participants are welcome (panels may include a chair and discussant as well). Send proposals or questions to Malloy at rpmalloy@law.syr.edu -- send him an e-mail and he will put you on the mailing list for e-updates on the ALPS Annual Meeting. More details to follow.)
