State and Local Control: California’s Battle Over Housing
Thursday January 30, 2020
Alumni Reception Center (“ARC”)
Join Hastings Law Journal for our annual “SCOCA” symposium at UC Hastings College of the Law. Our theme this year is California’s state and local control battle over housing, including bills like SB 35, (proposed) SB 50, and related litigation. The symposium will feature a practitioner panel of attorneys discussing the background and impact of these legislative efforts today, and an academic panel covering the different dimensions of growth and housing in the state. Topics of the academic panel will include smart growth and environmental considerations, jurisdictional spillover from metro areas to smaller localities, structural politics and home rule, and real world data and results on dense infill development.
We will conclude with a keynote address from State Senator Scott Wiener, who authored SB 35 and SB 50. A reception in the Alumni Reception Center will follow. We are in the process of applying for MCLE credit; please check back on this event page for updates.
