HP 602 Historic Preservation Law ​

Spring 2018

Live, 5 students

This was the first time HP 602 Historic Preservation Law was offered live. Students enrolled were all first-year MHPs. The students in the course were very involved in class discussions, frequently staying 30-40 minutes beyond the end of the meeting time. Their critical thinking and ability to make logical, evidence-supported arguments improved significantly over the period of the course. Students were asked to complete a series of assignments, attend a local preservation meeting, attend a lecture given by Richard Rothstein (Color of Law), and to participate in a series of online and live discussions. Finally, a comprehensive exam modeled on a typical law school exam was given at the end of the semester asking students to use statutes, case law, and articles to address preservation problems.
