The flagship event of the Program in Real Estate and Community Development Law at Texas A&M University School of Law, the Real Property Law Schmooze, will feature approximately ​17 legal scholars with expertise in either urban or rural property law to present ​their works-in-progress. Texas A&M University School of Law faculty affiliated with the Program in Real Estate and Community Development Law will also participate in the Schmooze.

The invitation-only ​Schmooze faculty workshop will afford property law scholars the opportunity to share unpublished works-in-progress or early-stage ideas that are relevant to the theme of how law can help resolve urban and rural challenges and bridge the urban versus rural divide. We welcome papers on a broad range of urban and rural property law challenges including, but not limited to, housing law and policy, land tenure, land loss, land use, zoning, the environment, and property law and theory, as well as papers that address international and comparative urban and rural property law issues.

His talk will be open to the entire law school, where as the Schmooze is an invitation-only workshop. Professor Singer will also be a participant in the Schmooze
