Professor Julian Conrad Juergensmeyer has released a student version of his newly updated third edition of Land Use Planning and Development Regulation Law. The text was co-written by Thomas E. Roberts, a professor at Wake Forest University School of Law and released as part of the Hornbook Series by West Publishing Co.
The updated book provides an overview of urban and city planning issues along with special discussions on environmental regulations, historic preservation and agricultural use.
The hornbook is an abridged version of the practitioner series third edition that was released in 2012.
