Professor Lee Fennell to Receive Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Prize

Lee Anne Fennell, Max Pam Professor of Law at the University of Chicago Law School, has been named the recipient of the 2024 Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Prize. Fennell will be honored during William & Mary Law School’s 21st annual Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference, which will be held on September 12-13, 2024 in Williamsburg.

“Lee Fennell is one of the most thoughtful and thought-provoking scholars writing about property law in the United States today,” said James Y. Stern, Professor of Law at William & Mary Law School and Director of William & Mary’s Property Rights Project. “Her work examining property’s conceptual and social boundaries has almost literally helped to reshape thinking about property law, and the Brigham-Kanner Prize is a fitting tribute to her many contributions.”

The Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Prize is named in honor of the lifetime contributions to property rights of the late Toby Prince Brigham, founding partner of Brigham Moore, LLP, and Gideon Kanner, Professor of Law Emeritus at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. The prize is presented annually to a scholar, practitioner, or jurist whose work affirms the fundamental importance of property rights.
