Our site provides teaching resources and updates for law faculty who teach courses in state and local government law and related fields. The site builds upon the earlier “State and Local Government Law” website established by Professor Daniel Mandelker of Washington University School of Law. The site is especially committed to providing support for those who use Mandelker, Salsich, Netsch, Wegner, Griffith, and Stevenson, State and Local Government in a Federal System (6th ed., 2006, Lexis Publishing). We hope the site will also prove helpful to those using any of the other major texts in the field. It will be expanded in time to provide special supplemental support for practitioners who teach as adjuncts in many law schools and those who teach in other related academic areas.
The site tracks current developments in the field of state and local government law and policy. To that end, it seeks to facilitate access to basic sources of law at the local and state level (such as charters, ordinances, statutes, and case law). It includes links to particularly important recent developments and commentary. Very current developments and commentary can also be tracked through the State and Local Government Law Blog maintained by Professor Judith Wegner.
The site also serves as a means of linking academics, policy makers, and practitioners working in the field of state and local government law to each other and to organizations engaged in work that may be of particular interest.
WELCOME.Welcome to our State and Local Government Law resource site. Our goal is to provide useful teaching, research, and collaboration resources to academics and practitioners involved in this important arena. We welcome suggestions and contributions that would enrich the site for the benefit of all. Please contact Professor Judith Welch Wegner, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with comments or suggestions (email@example.com).
