University of Toronto Faculty of Law


Commentators:
Benjamin Zipursky, Professor of Law, Fordham Law School
Michael Baur, Associate Professor of Philosophy and Adjunct Professor of Law, Fordham University


Monday, March 6, 2017

6:00 - 7:50 p.m. program
reception to follow

LOCATION
Fordham Law School
150 W 62nd Street
Bateman Room (2nd floor)

This lecture addresses the question of how  "use" and "exclusivity" are related in property law, or how an owner's liberty to use an owned thing is related to the owner's right to exclude others from the thing.  Relying mainly on the work of Immanuel Kant, the lecture seeks to show that the "right to use" and the "right to exclude" are not normatively independent of one another, but normatively interconnected or "integrative" aspects of ownership.

Free and open to the public
