Foreclosures, Loan Defaults, Repossessions: Lawyers Seek Housing Justice
The nation’s housing market was hard-hit during 2008, with nearly 3.2 million foreclosure filings, including loan default, auction sale notices and bank repossessions.
The ABA Commission on Homelessness and Poverty and the Forum on Affordable Housing and Community Development Law will host “Foreclosing on the American Dream: The Housing Crisis and the Role of the Lawyers and Laws in Securing Housing Justice” to further examine the crisis.
The panel will provide solutions for how lawyers can assist individuals and families in crisis due to foreclosure or eviction, and explore the benefits of affordable housing for all. On tap for this program are also updates on new initiatives that have been put into place because of the current crisis.
“Foreclosing on the American Dream” takes place Friday, Feb. 13 at 3 p.m. in the Hynes Convention Center, Level Three, Room 308.
