The United States Constitution protects rights to “due process.” In a criminal law context, due process is why suspects have the right to remain silent and to an attorney. In a land use law context, due process is why local governments must treat legislative and quasi-judicial decision making differently—and why courts treat decisions resulting from these two kinds of decisions differently, too. At the end of this course, students will be able to differentiate between legislative and quasi-judicial decisions and to understand the due process implications of the distinction.
