Touro Law Review special issue on the life and legacy of Charles A. Reich

In January of 2020, Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center held a small conference to honor the life and legacy of Charles A. Reich. In the words of the organizers: 

Charles A. Reich looms large in the history of American law and society of the second half of the twentieth century. His law review article “The New Property” not only influenced Supreme Court case law, but continues today to inform how Property and Constitutional Law are taught. His best-selling book The Greening of America explained the 1960s counterculture. The conference examined his life’s work and how it influenced the law.

The Touro Law Review has now published many of the remarks from that conference, along with some previously unpublished writing by Charles Reich himself. Here's the Table of Contents from the special issue:
