Three of her recent articles – “Architectural Exclusion” (Yale Law Journal), “Banning Lawns” (George Washington Law Review), and “Of Backyard Chickens and Front-yard Gardens: The Conflict Between Local Governments and Locavores” (Tulane Law Review) – were selected to be reprinted in the Land Use and Environmental Law Review, an annual, peer-selected compendium of the ten best land use and environmental law articles of the year. “Architectural Exclusion” and “Banning Lawns” were also competitively selected for presentation at the Sabin Colloquium on Innovative Environmental Scholarship at Columbia Law School.
