I'm just back from Berkeley--my first visit to that town. Pretty exciting for this legal historian to see a place that looms so large in recent history--and because I'm increasingly interested in the legal rules regarding parks and trees. Berkeley's just emerging from a lengthy protest over the cutting down of a grove of trees where a new athletic training facility will be built. The land where the trees stood is right near the law school. As usual, the folks over at wikipedia have lots of details, including a bunch of pictures (like the one I used to illustrate this post).
