student organizations

Community Economic Development (CED) promotes economic empowerment by providing resources and tools to low-income communities. The CED focuses on areas of the law that combine public interest law with basic transactional law, community activism, with pragmatic business principles.  Specific areas of interest include micro-lending, home-ownership, landlord/tenant Law, community activism, policy action, and poverty law.  The CED seeks to educate law students regarding issues and career opportunities in the field of community and economic development law as well as provide hands-on opportunities for students to get involved locally in community development efforts.
