Last week, I received in the mail a hard copy of the Touro Law Review's "The Taking Issue 40th Anniversary" symposium edition. The Fall, 2013 symposium used the 1973 publication of "The Taking Issue: A Study of the Constitutional Limits of Governmental Authority to Regulate the Use of Privately-Owned Land Without Paying Compensation to the Owners," by Fred Bosselman, David Callies and John Banta, as a starting point around which to gather leading scholars in takings. The collection is a great read on this moment in takings jurisprudence, with several retrospective and several prospective pieces. I was not able to find a link to the symposium edition online, but here is an image of the edition's cover page. I'm guessing TLR might send a copy to those interested or, of course, most of the articles will be on the legal databases soon.
