About

The Blog

The PreserveLaw blog offers in-depth analysis of various legal and policy issues related to the preservation of our cultural heritage. My goal is to write about issues that are interesting and informative to lawyers and non-lawyers alike. I am excited and passionate about this broad and expansive field, and I hope that comes across in my writing.

Rather than publishing many very short posts on a daily or weekly basis, PreserveLaw blog posts are longer, more substantive pieces that are typically published about once a month. Posts are usually limited to less than 1,000 words, with few exceptions.

Although I only blog monthly, I try to microblog daily via Twitter, so feel free to follow me there.

The Author

Unless otherwise noted, all PreserveLaw blog posts are written by Clint Tankersley. I am a Georgia attorney who specializes in cultural heritage law. I graduated in May 2014 from Georgia State University’s Master of Heritage Preservation program. I received my juris doctor from Georgia State University in 2013, along with a Certificate in Land Use and Environmental Law.

I assisted the authors in the first edition of the summer 2014 publication, Historic Preservation Law in a Nutshell. While in law school, I interned for the chief legal counsel in Georgia’s Department of Natural Resources, as well as the Certified Local Government program for the Georgia State Historic Preservation Office. I also serve as the Chairman of the Flint River Basin Advisory Council of the Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District.
