Law Distributes: Housing and Credit
in Poor Black Neighborhoods


Duncan Kennedy, Carter Professor of General Jurisprudence (Emeritus),  Harvard Law School

Like other well-intentioned progressives, legal advocates for residents of poor Black neighborhoods face a persistent accusation: that their efforts hurt the very people they mean to help. Disputing this charge, Professor Kennedy will propose a method for evaluating a wide range of legal reform projects.

Immediately following the lecture, Professor Kennedy will discuss his proposal with UB Law’s experts in housing policy (Professor Heather Abraham), political economy (Professor Matthew Dimick), and issues of race, gender, and class (Professor Athena Mutua).

A reception will follow. The entire program is free and open to the public, though registration is required.
