Land Use Law (LAW 733)

This course encompasses in-depth study of the law of land use planning and zoning, both generally and as it has developed in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.  The constitutional and statutory basis of land use controls is thoroughly examined, along with contemporary procedures involved with land use changes, cluster zoning, contract zoning, planned unit developments, subdivision and site plan review, and environmental impact assessment.  The course utilizes a combination of the casebook and problem methods, and pays attention to practical problems of representing clients before municipal bodies.

3 credit hours.
