LAND USE REGULATION
(LAWE-4020) - 3 UNITS
This course examines how the development and use of land is shaped by government regulation. Among the major issues this course will examine are: the law of zoning, constitutional constraints on land use regulation, and the rights of others that may be impacted by land use regulation and development. The course will also examine selected topics that are persistent and evolving issues in land use regulation such as exclusionary zoning, the financing of urban infrastructure, and the protection of the environment. Students will approach these issues from both theoretical and practical perspectives.
