One teaching objective that I have for the land use class is for the students to understand that a land use practice is not a typical litigation practice, and that most of the work gets done in negotiations or practice before administrative agencies and boards. That's why I require the students to attend a planning commission or zoning board meeting. Kathryn L. Moore (Kentucky) has posted a short, readable article offering some excellent practical advice for attorneys in this area: Practicing Before a Board of Adjustment: Seven Practical Tips, Bench & Bar, Vol. 57, p. 11, January 2011. The abstract:
Boards of Adjustment are administrative agencies, not courts of law. Thus, practice before a Board of Adjustment differs from general litigation. This Article offers seven practical tips for a successful practice before a Board of Adjustment.
