Welcome to the website for the next Annual Meeting of the Association for Law, Property and Society (ALPS) to be held from 11-13 May 2023 hosted by Southampton Law School, University of Southampton (United Kingdom).

The Association for Law, Property & Society is a membership organisation for scholars doing interdisciplinary legal scholarship on all aspects of property law and policy including; real, personal, intellectual, intangible, cultural, personal, and other forms of property. 

ALPS seeks to encourage dialogue across and among people in many disciplines who are interested in property law, policy, and theory. Most annual meetings include participants attending from six continents, representing numerous countries, and working in common law, civil law, Indigenous law, and mixed legal traditions. Paper submissions on any subject related to property law and the practices that shape property norms and institutions are welcome. Possible organizing themes include, but are not limited to, land use planning, zoning, water law, environmental law, energy law, mortgages and financing, land titles, housing issues, real estate development, historic preservation, property of Indigenous people, comparative perspectives on property law, race and gender issues in property, intellectual property rights, property theory, and takings law. ALPS has a strong commitment to international and interdisciplinary diversity, and paper topics reflecting that commitment are encouraged.
