Join us at the Williams Lecture, "How to Address Racial Disparity in Property Ownership" in which Thomas W. Mitchell addresses how legislative reform of property laws that negatively impact disadvantaged property owners in disproportionate ways can be achieved and the significant barriers that stymie such reform efforts. He will draw upon his experience serving as the reporter (principal drafter) for the Uniform Law Commission of the Uniform Partition of Heirs Property Act, a uniform act enacted into law in ten states thus far, as a case study of how such reform can be achieved working with elite legal actors and activists at the local and state level. Mitchell serves as Interim Dean and Professor at Texas A&M University School of Law, where he also co-directs the Program in Real Estate and Community Development Law.
Please join us at 5:15pm for a light reception before the lecture.
This event is free and open to the public.
