A new handbook for city attorneys and local public officials focuses on the legal issues relating to the regulation of on-premise signs. Free Speech Law for On Premise Signs is authored by Professor Daniel R. Mandelker, the Stamper Professor of Law at Washington University in St. Louis, where he is a leading scholar and teacher of land use law, state and local government law, property law and environmental law.
In the handbook, Mandelker instructs local governments on how to regulate on-premise sign displays through content-neutral sign ordinances that are fair, objective, even-handed and supported by accepted government purposes, without creating constitutional problems.
