Weekend Roundup

  • Although it sounds more in Property than Legal History, but Rick Hills's penetrating post on the Supreme Court's recent exaction decision explains a great deal about the Supreme Court's attempt to police local land use decision since the 1980s (with a look back to the early twentieth century).
  • On the merits of browsing the stacks: in the Chronicle of Higher Education, Julio Alves (Smith College) makes the case for "a greater awareness of what we are losing in overprivileging digital tools, and a better balance of digital practices and traditional ones." 
The Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
