Boehl Distinguished Lecture Series in Land Use Policy

 

The Louis D. Brandeis School of Law at the University of Louisville sponsors the Boehl Distinguished Lecture in Land Use Policy.  This lecture series brings a nationally prominent scholar in land use law and policy to the University every semester to deliver a major public lecture and to meet with groups of faculty, students, and members of the community.

 

The Boehl Endowment Fund supports this lecture series, as well as the Boehl Chair in Property and Land Use.  It was established with funds from the Kentucky Research Challenge Trust Fund and the Estate of Herbert F. Boehl.  Through the Kentucky Research Challenge Trust Fund – known more colloquially as “Bucks for Brains” – the Commonwealth of Kentucky has invested over $330 million to create endowed chairs and professorships at the University of Louisville and the University of Kentucky.  The late Herbert F. Boehl was a 1918 graduate of the law school.  He was a founding member of Boehl, Stopher & Graves LLP, a civil litigation defense firm in Louisville, and was honored as a life member of the University’s Board of Overseers.
