This book offers a comprehensive presentation on the laws and jurisprudence that deal with the creation of local government units.


Special attention is given to laws and jurisprudence governing qualifications and disqualifications of elective local officials.


A significant number of Supreme Court decisions dealing with the “three-term limit rule” is reflected in this book in order to explain the nuances in the application of this rule to different scenarios.


Attempts are likewise made to incorporate in this book as many relevant American or foreign authorities as possible.


Works and opinions of authorities in municipal corporation laws, such as those of Dillon, McQuillin, and Cooley are carefully selected in order to make this book still handy yet comprehensive and authoritative.


This book is presented in a topical and narrative form to make it easier for the readers to understand the subject.
