I am pleased to announce that I am joining the 9th edition of West's Land Use and Sustainable Development Law (link to 8th edition here), which will be available for use (along with an updated Teacher's Manual) in time for the the Fall, 2017 term. Published continuously since 1954, this casebook is believed to be the oldest land use law casebook in the country.
Since 2003, the casebook has been edited by John Nolon and Patricia Salkin. For this edition, Jon Rosenbloom and I are joining the authorship team. The four of us have spent considerable time updating the casebook, ensuring that it covers both the basics--everything from CUPs to takings--as well as cutting edge topics like the sharing economy, hydraulic fracturing, and trends in green development.
Stay tuned for more exciting details on the casebook in the months to come. Of course, feel free to reach out to any of us if you would like more information in the meantime.
