This issue of the Pace Law Review is dedicated to a man and an idea in which he believed. James A. Coon was land use counsel to the Department of State in New York when he died in 1992. For a quarter of a century he served as counsel to several New York State agencies, all involved in some way with providing technical assistance to those interested in the subject of land use law. The selection of articles contained in this symposium captures James Coon's respect for New York's aging legal system, and his certainty that the system is adaptable to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century. These writings originated as speeches, most of which were presented in April, 1993 at a conference on Land Use Law Reform held at Pace University School of Law in White Plains, New York.
