The Center for Access to Justice at GSU Law hosts an annual conference, the State of the South, focused on a different access to justice issue every year, with an emphasis on how it is playing out in the South.
The third annual State of the South conference will focus on housing justice. We will discuss access to safe, stable, and affordable housing and the role the law plays in enabling or frustrating that access. By including a range of states and interdisciplinary perspectives, the conference will explore the structural and legal obstacles to securing housing justice, what eviction and eviction court look like in the South, other legal and social issues that impact and are impacted by housing, and the unique challenges and innovative potential solutions in our region.
Join us Thursday, February 20th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm for an opening reception, and for the conference, Friday, February 21st from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. Register below.
