Land and the Law of Takings

About this Course

When does the government go "too far" in regulating land use without compensating the landowner?  This seminar traces the development of the constitutional regulatory takings doctrine in the United States-why it developed, what lines it draws, what voids have not yet been filled, how existing case law applies to various types of situations and whether the lines need to be redrawn by the courts or by legislatures to meet more fully the complex, competing needs of our society.
