601:620. FEDERALIZATION OF LAND USE (2)
Prerequisite: CONSTITUTIONAL LAW
Although traditionally seen as a State matter, with the incorporation of the Fourteenth Amendment against the States and with the expansion of the modern regulatory state, the Federal constitutional and statutory law increasingly affects how land can be developed and used. This course seeks to undertake a survey of the Federal Constitutional provisions and statutes that impact the development and use of land, as well as to analyze current and future developments in this area of the law. There are no prerequisites, although having taken introductory courses in Constitutional, Land Use and Environmental Law would be helpful in understanding the material presented. The Course grade will be based upon a mid-term and a final exam.
