The spring 2010 Natural Law Colloquium will take place on Thursday, February 4, at 6:00 pm in the McNally Amphitheatre of Fordham Law School. Our speakers will be Professor Eduardo Penalver (Cornell Law School) and Sonia Katyal (Fordham Law School), and our topic will be: "Property Outlaws: On Ownership, Law, Morality, and Disobedience". With this event, we aim to celebrate the recent release of a new book by Professors Penalver and Katyal ("Property Outlaws: How Squatters, Pirates, and Protesters Improve the Law of Ownership"), and also address a host of issues raised in that book (e.g., the nature and limits of private property ownership, the imperatives of social justice, the possible justifications for civil disobedience and stealing, etc.). This event is free and open to the public.
