Understanding the law of zoning and land use controls
By Burke, D. Barlow.
Third edition. 2013.
The LexisNexis “Understanding” series is similar to West’s Nutshells and Carolina Academic Press’ “Mastering” series. Each topic mirrors the coverage of a first year law school course. Major statutes and important case law are covered, but detailed footnotes are left for the treatise on the subject. While written with law students in mind, this type of overview can be helpful as a refresher for lawyers or a starting point for other researchers. LexisNexis provides a detailed Table of Contents and the first chapter of most volumes in the series on their website.
