Property Law and Race

Date: Friday, August 27, 2021
Time: 1:00 PM EDT 

Join Professors Joseph William Singer (Harvard University), Bethany Berger (University of Connecticut), Nestor Davidson (Fordham University), and Eduardo Peñalver (President, Seattle University) for a conversation on meaningfully engaging with the intersection between property law and race in the first-year property course. Since its first edition, the Singer Property casebook has been a pioneer in illustrating the pervasive links between property, race, and other forms of inequality. In response to calls from both students and professors for more ways to address these links, the 2021 edition builds on this strength with new materials on exclusion from public accommodations, the impact of slavery on U.S. economic and legal development, contests over implementation of the Fair Housing Act, discrimination in home financing, the impact of eminent domain on communities of color, and many other subjects. The webinar will provide an introduction to these materials, as well as a discussion of strategies for incorporating the role of property in creating and combating inequality.
