Litigating Land Use Cases     LAW-722

This class tracks land use cases from the client’s first meeting with counsel who senses that litigation may ensue right through the appellate process. In this course you will learn how to frame issues from day one, analyze winning (and losing) arguments and prepare yourself to be an appellate litigant in land use matters. -- This course is important for future transactional lawyers, not just litigators. The reality of land use practice is that many times your client’s project will be rejected for any of a number of reasons. Transactional lawyers need to understand the traps in the process when they are pursuing land use permission.
