The Wade L. Hopping Institute for Private Property Rights
Pacific Legal Foundation is proud to announce the establishment of The Wade L. Hopping Institute for Private Property Rights at Pacific Legal Foundation’s Atlantic Center in Stuart, Florida.
PLF is grateful for the leadership and friendship Wade gave to us during his many years on the Board and we are honored to carry on his mission for the benefit of future generations of Americans.
The Institute will serve to permanently commemorate Wade’s leadership, legislative advocacy and vigilant determination to win landmark court decisions that protect the right to own and use private property. Through the Institute PLF will apply new and considerable human and financial resources to litigate property rights cases that have the best chance at setting legal precedent; advance the Institute’s initiatives with focused communications, marketing and public outreach; and prepare new property rights attorneys to carry on this mission for the benefit of future generations of Americans.
