2020 View of Urban Infrastructure: The Urban Lawyer's Juergensmeyer Festschrift

This exciting issue of The Urban Lawyer came in the mail recently, and I didn't get a chance to blog it when it came in, but it's chock full of great articles as well as a fitting tribute to one of the leaders in our field.  The articles start at the citation 42 Urban Law. 1 (Winter 2011).  It's a longish list but there are so many interesting contributions.  From "A 2020 View of Urban Infrastructure: A Festschrift Symposium in Honor of Julian Conrad Juergensmeyer, on the Occasion of his 45th Year of Teaching Law":
