GSU Law professor Ryan Rowberry and Sara Bronin from the University of Connecticut have co-authored a new book in West’s popular Nutshell series. Historic Preservation Law in a Nutshell provides lawyers, preservation professionals, and others with a succinct introduction to this emerging area of law.
According to the publisher:
Historic Preservation in a Nutshell provides the first-ever in-depth summary of historic preservation law within its local, state, tribal, federal, and international contexts. Historic Preservation is a burgeoning area of law that includes aspects of property, land use, environmental, constitutional, cultural resources, international, and Native American law. This book covers the primary federal statutes, and many facets of state statutes, dealing with the protection and preservation of historic resources. It also includes key topics like the designation process, federal agency obligations, local regulation, takings and other constitutional concerns, and real estate development issues.
Professor Rowberry joined the GSU Law faculty in 2011. He teaches property and environmental law classes as well as courses on legal history. Congratulations, Ryan!
