Program Format

Please note that this year’s program is formatted on a series of topical roundtables. This format allows for the presentation of work-in-progress as we undertake to consider the emergence of new ideas, theories or methodologies. Presenters are asked to keep their opening remarks to 5-10 minutes and are encouraged to relate their work to the wider trends in law and society scholarship. Audience members will be encouraged to take this opportunity to reflect with presenters and share their views on the state of the field by exploring the “how?”, “why?”, and “so what?” questions that ultimately drive our research agendas.

Critical approaches to property law reveal the way in which Anglo-American conceptions of property as bounded and alienable undermine the goals of environmental protection. This roundtable discussion will examine the implications of contemporary critiques of Anglo-American conceptions of property for a reconceptualization of the possibility of legal solutions to environmental protection problems with local, global and transboundary dimensions. We will tentatively consider the following questions. How are current environmental protection laws influenced by Anglo-American understandings of property? What might critical approaches to property theory tell us about how environmental protection laws could be re-imagined? Do ENGOs have a role to play in promoting a critical property environment vision?

 

In addition, Brenna Keatinge (University of Toronto) will join this panel to discuss her current work regarding civic participation in land use governance in Boston and Toronto.

Location & Parking Information

 

The Centre for Criminology and Socio-Legal Studies is located in the Canadiana Building on the west side of Queen’s Park circle. Taking the subway is highly recommended given the lack of parking. The Queen's Park subway stop and the College streetcar are both about five minutes' walk from the Centre (walk north, toward the legislature building, and keep to the left/west branch of the Queen's Park circle).

If you do drive, the best place to park for Saturday is the underground lot at the Rotman business school on St George, just south of Bloor; but allow for 10 -15 minutes, to walk to the Centre. Leaving the lot, turn south on St George, then east (left) on Hoskin, and then right (south) on Queens' Park Crescent West, over the bridge. The Centre's building (Canadiana) is directly across the street from the main legislature building.

There is also metered parking around King's College circle and Hart House, but it's very expensive and not convenient.
