Carol N. Brown

Carol N. Brown joined the faculty of the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Law in July 2007. From 2001-2007, she taught law at the University of Alabama School of Law. Brown's scholarship examines the role of private property rights protections in stabilizing the position of economically vulnerable property owners and of those who do not own property. By examining judicial and legislative developments in the area of property law, her work shows how proposals for rigorous protection of private property rights are more protective of middle and lower class property owners and of non-property owners than are proposals for less rigorous private property rights protection. She teaches property, land use planning, and real estate transactions. Brown is the chair of the Section on Real Estate Transactions of the American Association of Law Schools, and a member of the Committee on Research of the American Association of Law Schools.
