The Boehl Distinguished Lecture Series in Land Use Policy,
established by the Boehl Chair in Property & Land Use endowment,
brings a nationally prominent land use scholar to the University of
Louisville Brandeis School of Law each semester. The purpose of this
lecture series is to expand and enrich land use education and thinking
at UofL. Attendees of the free presentation will hear directly about
cutting-edge research that may be appearing or soon-to-appear in a
publication venue.   This year's speaker is Alejandro Camacho, professor of Law and Political Science at the University of California, Irvine, School of Law.   The Boehl Lectures have been enormously enriching.  The past lectures include:Winter 2007: Tony Arnold (Louisville), inaugural lecture, "The People's Land: Justice Brandeis, Environmental Conservation, and Wisdom for Today's Land Use Challenges"Spring 2007: Linda Malone (William & Mary), "Think Globally, Act Locally: A Pivotal Transformation in the Global Warming Debate"Fall 2007: Eric Freyfogle (Illinois), "The Endless War: Private Land in Law and Culture"Spring 2008: Julian Juergensmeyer (Georgia State), "Infrastructure and the Law: The Evolution of Infrastructure Requirements"Summer 2008: Victor Flatt (then at Houston, now at North Carolina), "Act Locally, Affect Globally: Local Government's Role in Addressing Climate Change and Other Large-Scale Environmental Harms"Fall 2008: Vicki Been (NYU), "Silver Bullet or Trojan Horse?
