Missouri condemnation lawyer Robert Denlow will discuss issues affecting private property rights and the protection of cultural property at the 13th Annual Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference this fall in The Hague, The Netherlands.

The William & Mary Property Rights Project has invited Missouri eminent domain attorney Robert Denlow to speak at the Thirteenth Annual Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference, October 20, 2016, in The Netherlands. Mr. Denlow will participate on a panel tasked with addressing the challenges society faces in recognizing and protecting cultural and historical property during times of peace and unrest.

"It is a great honor to be invited to speak at this international property rights conference in The Hague, the City of Peace and Justice and seat of international law," said Denlow, principal partner of Denlow & Henry with offices in St. Louis and Kansas City, Missouri. "I am looking forward to participating in a session where property rights are intertwined with the protection of cultural heritage and international law."

Since 2004, the William & Mary Property Rights Project has sponsored the Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference which is renowned for engaging panel discussions featuring legal scholars, judges, and practicing attorneys. The 2016 Property Rights Conference is presented in cooperation with the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies of Leiden Law School and will take place at The Peace Palace in The Hague, The Netherlands.

Annually the Conference awards the Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Prize to an individual whose work has contributed to the awareness of the fundamental role property rights play in safeguarding individual rights and freedom. The Property Rights Conference and Prize are named in recognition of Toby Prince Brigham and Gideon Kanner for their lifetime contributions to defending the right of private property ownership, their efforts to advance the constitutional protection of property, and their accomplishments in preserving the important role that private property plays in protecting individual and civil rights. The 2016 Property Rights Prize will be awarded to Peruvian economist Hernando de Soto, President of the Institute of Liberty and Democracy (ILD) headquartered in Lima, Peru.
