[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] Public Interest Law: Direct Legal Services

Why it is relevant for ...

[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] as a Key Elective : Local governments are often on the forefront of economic development and related policy issues. Cities and towns become innovators and experimenters as they cope with local concerns and their proximity to specific problems. Local Government Law and Local Initiatives address local government power and local problems that may give rise to innovative problem-solving.

General course Description:

Local governments exert tremendous influence over socioeconomics, race relations, environmental health, political power, and housing and real estate. This public law course will investigate the law of these governments (including cities, counties, and special districts) from four vantage points: (1) local governments within the federalist system, including the balance of power between local, state, and federal governments; (2) horizontal questions of power, including hierarchy and specialization among local governments; interlocal cooperation and competition; and the creation, expansion, and dissolution of local entities; (3) innovative uses and delegations of local authority to achieve state or local public policy goals; and (4) the nature of local democracy and local finance, including citizen influence of local lawmaking through initiatives and referenda, alternative voting schemes, and responses to fiscal distress. Discussions and in-class projects in the course will be situated in locations ranging from rural towns to major metropolises across the country.

Course Style: A Substantive course teaches the law, theory, and policy in a particular area of law

Course Frequency: Offered once a year
