LAW 743 - Historic Preservation Seminar
This seminar examines the law applicable to archaeological, architecturally significant and other historic structures and cultural sites. The legal rationale behind police power regulations is studied, as are the alternative means of protection at local, state and federal levels of government. Private property tools and tax incentives are reviewed. The conflicts between preservation laws and other social values, the use of religious sites protected by the First Amendment, and the scope of "regulatory takings" are featured as a case study. Students are graded based on class participation and either a research paper or a project applying preservation laws to an actual factual setting. Both papers and projects must be presented orally to the class and two tutorial meetings with the professor must be scheduled to explore either the paper's research or the project's preparation.
