Michael Lewyn has joined the full-time faculty. He will be teaching Property II (evening) in Fall 2011, and ultimately courses in property, land use and environmental law. Originally from Atlanta, he graduated from Weslyan University and received his J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School. After clerking for two federal judges and practicing law for several years, he began his teaching career; most recently, he’s been at Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville, Florida. Most of Professor Lewyn's scholarship focuses on urban and suburban development, and in particular the question of "sprawl": why some cities are walkable and full of vitality, while others have been overshadowed by suburbs where car ownership is a necessity.
