Issues of race and racism have been pervasive in American property law. Examples include (and are not limited to): dispossession of Indigenous peoples' lands, slavery of African-Americans, and the potential role of reparations; discrimination in zoning laws, private covenants, real estate finance, rental tenancies, and the potential role of fair housing law; partition of Black farmers' interests in concurrently owned lands; restrictions on interracial marriage; discriminatory deployment of the eminent domain power; and more. Join us for a discussion on March 23 (speakers TBA). This event is part of the series on Race and the 1L Curriculum, sponsored by the Office of the Dean.
