Survey Article


In this day, the general practice which does not typically touch upon some aspect of "local government law" is a rare one indeed. What may once have been peripheral has become truly central. These realities were duly reflected during the survey period, when the appellate courts rendered more than 80 material decisions and the General Assembly enacted more than 20 notable measures.

The court decisions are arranged by subject matter, and only the most noteworthy legislative products are included. Not surveyed are local and special enactments, population statutes, and resolutions proposing amendments to the constitution but not yet ratified.

Welcome to a lively legal locale.
