In addition to the several colloquia that are aimed specifically at environmental and land use topics, NYU School of Law offers a wide variety of other colloquia, at which papers on environmental and land use law often are presented. In 2002-03, for example:
Erica Field, Ph.D. candidate in the Economics Department at Princeton University, presented “Entitled to Work: Urban Property Rights and Labor Supply in Peru,” a study of how land titling programs in Peru affected labor market participation, at the Colloquium on Law, Economics, and Politics. Field’s study was later featured in an article in the New York Times.
Professor Clayton Gillette of NYU School of Law presented “The Locality’s Relationship with the State:The Scope of Local Autonomy” at the Colloquium on Law, Economics, and Politics.
Keith Maskus from the World Bank presented “Problems Patents Pose for Developing Countries” at the Colloquium on Innovation Policy.
