Professor Sarah Schindler’s recent article, “Architectural Exclusion: Discrimination and Segregation Through Physical Design of the Built Environment” (Yale Law Journal) was selected as one of the best land use articles of the year by the Land Use and Environment Law Review, a peer selected anthology. This is the third time that an article by Professor Schindler has been selected for inclusion in the Review. Her article “Banning Lawns” (George Washington Law Review) was selected as one of the best articles in the 2015-2016 edition, and “Of Backyard Chickens and Front Yard Gardens” (Tulane Law Review) was selected for the 2013-14 volume.
Articles are selected for inclusion in the Land Use and Environmental Law Review after a panel of land use and environmental law faculty from across the nation narrow over 100 articles down to 20 finalists. From that group of finalists another panel of legal scholars selects the final few land use articles for republication in the Review. Thomson Reuters, the Review’s publisher describes the anthology as a collection of “the most insightful thinking on a wide range of current and emerging land use and development issues.”
Professor Schindler is currently on sabbatical, spending the year in residence at Princeton University where she is a fellow in the Program in Law and Public Affairs (LAPA). She has earned a national reputation for her creative scholarship, which focuses on property, land use, local government and sustainable development.
