Book talk on "Evidence and Innovation in Housing Law and Policy"
On October 23 at the Seminary Co-op, three contributing authors, Lior Strahilevitz (UChicago Law), Stephanie Stern (Chicago-Kent College of Law), and Amir Sufi (Chicago Booth), discussed their chapters and joined in a discussion moderated by Lee Fennell (UChicago Law) about the future of housing law and policy.
“As people are increasingly living in urban areas really close to each other, it starts to be the case that so much of the value of your property is bound up in things that are happening outside of your parcel.”
The Kreisman Initiative on Housing Law and Policy began at the Law School in the fall of 2013. The Initiative’s mission is to bring Chicago ideas to bear on policy debates, policy making, and legal and business decision making through scholarly research, external engagement, and educational programming.
