Fighting Urban Blight, One Semester at a Time


This past semester, as part of the Albany Law class “Law and Social Innovation: Creative Problem Solving,” law students and faculty and students from the University at Albany’s Rockefeller College of Public Affairs & Policy and the U Albany Center for Technology in Government, teamed up to work with the land banks in the capital region of New York State to develop strategies and programs to address their prospects for long-term sustainability.  Read a description of the class and the class project here.  Read the students’ final report for the class here.  And read what I have written about the class in the past — the approach and methodology — here.
