Our 24th Annual Land Use Law & Planning Conference offers a big-picture view of land use law and planning practice. A variety of knowledgable speakers will provide succinct and provocative updates on core state and federal case law, and legislation, as well as practice pointers on basic land use law and planning issues.

The conference, hosted by the UCLA Extension Public Policy Program will delve into economic development and recovery and what "forward thinking planning" really entails for 2010. Climate change impacts, best management practices relating to water quality and CEQA developments are all topics to be touched on at this year's conference.

This event has been approved for 7 hours CM (AICP) and MCLE (State Bar of California) credit.

Keynote Address:

Edward Blakely on
Urban Development: Writing the Chapter after Disaster

Natural disasters have been wreaking havoc across the globe in unprecedented numbers. While recovery efforts vary widely, they cut across common themes: real estate and development; transportation systems and land use; human development and jobs; environmental justice and equity. How do we deal with the crises in the midst of economic challenges? What have we learned from Katrina – and other catastrophes – to rebuild sustainably, avoiding policy and legal pitfalls?

Edward Blakely is Honorary Professor of Urban Policy at the US Studies Centre, having previously served for two years as Executive Director of the Office of Recovery and Development Administration, the "recovery czar" for New Orleans following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.
