Dispossessing Detroit: How the Law Takes Property

A Special Issue Symposium by the University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform, Vol. 53

Date & time

Nov 9-10, 2019, 8:30 am-4:00 pm EST

Each year, the Journal of Law Reform hosts a symposium where academics and policymakers from across the country come together to discuss a specific legal reform. This fall, our Symposium team is hosting “Dispossessing Detroit: How the Law Takes Property” on November 9 and 10, 2019. 

The goals of this Symposium are to provide historical and political context for current issues of property dispossession and to consider how governments, private industry, and private citizens can together seek reform. The Symposium will consist of two main days of events, one focused on scholarship and panel discussions and the second will consist of an opportunity to get involved by working with the United Community Housing Coalition.
