Takings and Coastal Management a Quarter-Century
after Lucas v. South Carolina Coastal Council
November 2–4, 2017
The symposium will bring practicing attorneys, regulators, policy makers, and public interest advocates together with academic experts in real property, environmental, coastal, and administrative law.
Over the course of two days, these experts will explore the law Lucas established and how that law has affected the management of coastal property, both nationally and in the southeast. Expert panels will explore:
- the public policy effects of Lucas, including whether national environmental policy results in national land use planning
- how federal, state, and local governments may creatively cooperate
- the role of flood insurance in coastal property management
The third day of the symposium offers participants the opportunity to travel to Wild Dunes in Charleston, South Carolina, where participants will visit the property at issue in Lucas and other nearby locations that provide interesting examples of legal issues associated with coastal development.
To conclude this visit, participants will gather for cocktails at the beach home of The Honorable Jean Hoefer Toal, former Chief Justice of the South Carolina Supreme Court.
