On behalf of the NYU Journal of Law & Liberty, The Classical Liberal Institute, and the New York University School of Law, we invite you to attend a conference on the recent Supreme Court decision, Horne v. United States Department of Agriculture. “Horne: Property and Prohibitions” will be held at the New York University School of Law on Friday, February 26, 2015, from 9:00am to 12:00pm.  Lunch will be available following the conference.

Horne altered American agricultural policy and unified Takings jurisprudence by recognizing protections for personal property as well as real property. What exactly this means, especially for New Deal-era regulations and broader agricultural law, is unclear. Horne’s impact also extends past the agricultural cases and can cover land use, intellectual property and financial arrangements. This conference seeks to analyzeHorne from both positive and normative perspectives.

The conference will consist of two panels, which will focus on (1) the implications of the decision for Takings law and (2) the impact on American agricultural policy and agri-business. Participants include Karen Bradshaw Schulz, Arizona State University; Steven Eagle, George Mason University School of Law; Richard Epstein, NYU School of Law; Clayton Gillette, NYU School of Law; Roderick Hills Jr., NYU School of Law; Dean Lueck, University of Arizona; Stephen Schwartz, Cause of Action; and Aaron Simowitz, NYU School of Law.

This event has been approved for up to 3 New York State CLE credits in the Areas of Professional Practice category. It will be appropriate for both experienced and newly admitted attorneys (those admitted to the New York Bar for less than two years) and is presented in traditional (in person) format. CLE credits will be awarded per panel.

The conference is free to attend and open to the public.
