This guide provides an introduction to land use law research in the United States, specifically land use regulation and zoning and planning law. Given the breadth and jurisdiction-specific nature of land use law, this guide is inherently selective. Useful information will also be available in sources on environmental law, historic preservation, real estate and property law, and municipal law. See our Treatise Finder and other research guides for a more information on how to find these resources.
