In October 2000, at a conference related to land preservation, she presented a paper entitled "Perpetual Restrictions on Land and the Problem of the Future," which diverged 180 degrees from the prevailing academic thought at the conference and became widely read. Professor Mahoney's paper went into greater depth than previous works that raised the issue of perpetuity and helped crystallize this emerging concern about conservation easements.
