A nationally recognized real estate law expert, Professor Ann M. Burkhart of the University of Minnesota Law School, will give the Distinguished Gifford Lecture in Real Property for 2017 at the William S. Richardson School of Law at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

The lecture, titled “Fixing Foreclosure,” and will be held from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 9, at the moot courtroom. A reception with light refreshments will follow from 5:30 to 6 p.m.

The annual free public lecture is presented by the Carlsmith Ball law firm.

"We're honored to have Professor Burkhart speak at the Law School and address a topic of such importance to our community,” said Acting Law Dean Melody K. MacKenzie. “We are grateful to the Carlsmith Ball law firm for their continued support of the Gifford Lecture and for advancing the education of our students and graduates in learning from such a renowned scholar." 

The Gifford Foundation established the Distinguished Lectureship in Real Property in 2002 to honor David L. Callies, the Benjamin A. Kudo Professor of Law at the UH Law School, and prominent Hawai‘i attorney Jerry M. Hiatt for their superior work in the field of real property. The foundation is a charitable organization established by Jack Gifford, the chairman, president and chief executive officer of Maxim Integrated Products Inc. in Sunnyvale, California.

Burkhart is the Curtis Bradbury Kellar Professor of Law and has received the University of Minnesota Law School’s Stanley V. Kinyon Teaching and Counseling Award as the overall Teacher of the Year five times.

Praised for her outstanding scholarship, mentoring of students and passion as a teacher, she has also been named a Distinguished University Teaching Professor by the University of Minnesota Law School.
