Land Use Law & Planning Conference


The 32nd Annual Land Use Law & Planning Conference

Millennium Biltmore Hotel

Friday, January 19, 2018


The Public Policy Program at UCLA Extension is proud to preside over the annual Land Use Law and Planning Conference, largely regarded as a leading source of information on California land use legislation, case law, and the emerging issues that frame land use and development practices in the nation’s most populous state. Its unique cross-disciplinary approach explores the full range of perspectives drawn from the land use planning, legal, development, and environmental communities–and demonstrates how these factors influence the day-to-day work of planners, developers, environmental regulators, and attorneys.

This conference provides a big picture view of land use law and planning practice. Our guest speakers consistently provide succinct and provocative updates on core state and federal case law and legislation, mixed with practice pointers on basic land use law and planning issues. This conference is essential for attorneys, planners, environmentalists, and developers who need to know how land use law and planning is changing and affecting their interests. Join our experts and audience members next year, as they review the important issues of the past year and explore what is on the horizon.

  • The Housing Crisis: The More Things Change The More They Stay the Same
  • CEQA 2017: The Supreme Court Weighs In
  • Climate Actions Plans: Embracing or Retreating Post-Newhall?
  • Planning, Zoning, and Development Law: Exactions, Initiatives, Referenda and More
