Foreclosing on the American Dream: The Housing Crisis and the Role of Lawyers and Laws in Securing Housing Justice
Conference / Event Title
ABA Mid Year Meeting, Commission on Homelessness and Poverty
Families are losing their homes, often with no place to go. Innocent tenants paying their rent on time every month are being evicted on short notice when their landlords go through foreclosure. These are just some of the fallout of the housing crisis. This interactive program will focus on a hypothetical family in crisis and explore how lawyers can assist those facing such turmoil as well as ways to bolster efforts to create new affordable housing options.
