A conference on the dimensions of property law

12 March 2013

Sydney Law School scholars gathered in Geneva, Switzerland for the Geneva-Harvard-Renmin-Sydney Law Faculty Conference, a three-day event that explored the history and evolution of property laws around the world.

The conference took place between 14 and 16 January 2013 and it was principally organised by the University of Geneva Faculty of Law and the Confucius Institute, and was sponsored by the Latsis Foundation and Hanban, an organisation dedicated to Chinese cultural teaching worldwide.

Sydney Law School staff that participated included:

"The conference was an invaluable chance to exchange views on a diverse range of issues in property law," said Associate Professor Weatherall.

"I learned a great deal about how some different legal systems - American, European, International, Chinese - approach property and regulatory impacts on property.

"I also valued the chance to meet colleagues from around the globe - I'm sure it will lead to better contacts between the four universities."

Professor Helen Irving and Professor David Kinley were involved in the setting up of the conference.

There are plans for Renmin University to host a follow up conference in 2014 in Beijing.
