First, a great big thank you to guest-blogger Jerrold Long. Jerry will be wrapping up his guest stint this week, but he is more than welcome back anytime. I know I speak for my colleagues and our readers when I say that Jerry contributed the most interesting and thoughtful posts to this blog during the month of April.
Next, I am thrilled to announce that Troy A. Rule, land use prof from the University of Missouri, will be rejoining us for the month of May. After his terrific guest-blogging service last May, we're thrilled to welcome him back. From his Missouri facutly bio page:
Professor Rule joined the law faculty as an Associate Professor of Law in 2009. Prior to entering law teaching, he was an attorney at K&L Gates LLP in Seattle, where his practice focused primarily on commercial real estate transactions and wind energy development.
Professor Rule graduated summa cum laude with a B.S. in economics from Brigham Young University in 2001. He graduated with honors from the University of Chicago Law School in 2005, where he served on the Chicago Journal of International Law and was awarded a John M. Olin Student Fellowship in Law & Economics.
Before attending law school, Professor Rule was a credit manager at a finance company and taught a preparation course for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). Professor Rule’s research focuses primarily on renewable energy and property law. He teaches Land Use, Secured Transactions, Sales & Leases, and Real Estate Transactions and was awarded the Gold Chalk Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2011.
Now, Troy has published a remarkable string of articles on solar access, wind rights, and airspace. My only question is why does a land use prof focus so much on the space above the dirt? Of course it's all critically important, and we're very much looking forward to hearing from Troy this month.
