Mark Twain’s investment advice was “Buy land, they're not making it anymore.” The finite nature of land, the increasing recognition of the need to protect natural and built resources, and the greater sophistication of both development advocates and opposition stakeholders has resulted in increased conflict. This symposium will highlight creative and effective conflict resolution. The audience will include lawyers, judges, developers, public officials, environmental activists, property owners, land planners, lenders, design professionals, and consultants.
Keynote speaker Lawrence Susskind is a City Planner, Mediator, and MIT Professor. He is one of the country’s most experienced public policy and environmental dispute mediators and a leading figure in the dispute resolution field. He has mediated more than 50 complex disputes related to the siting of controversial facilities, the formulation and implementation of development plans and projects, and conflicts among racial and ethnic groups.
