Law Dean’s Lecture Series to focus on ‘Talking About Property’

Ohio Northern University’s Pettit College of Law presents James E. Krier, Earl Warren DeLano professor of law at the University of Michigan, as part of the Dean’s Lecture Series in the Celebrezze Moot Court Room on Tuesday, April 14, at 11 a.m.

The title of Krier’s presentation is “Talking About Property.” The event is free and open to the public.

Krier will lead a discussion about property: why we have property, why property law works the way it does, what we think the law can accomplish, and what we think it can’t accomplish. This will be a give-and-take discussion with audience members, who are encouraged to ask questions and participate.

Krier has taught courses on contracts, property, trusts and estates, behavioral law and economics, and environmental policy. His research interests are primarily in the fields of property and law and economics, and he is the author or coauthor of several books, including “Environmental Law and Policy,” “Pollution and Policy,” and “Property.” A professor of law at UCLA and Stanford before joining the Michigan Law faculty in 1983, he has been a visiting professor at Harvard Law School, Yeshiva University’s Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, and the University of Alabama Law School. Krier earned a BS and JD from the University of Wisconsin.
