    The problem of housing affordability strikes at the heart of the property law. Although it can be argued that housing affordability is a social problem separate from the edifice of property law, the choices that are made on everything from zoning to societal expectations regarding housing quality directly impact the extent to which individuals and families are either priced out of safe and decent housing or face mounting housing costs that limit their ability to meet other basic needs. Especially as demand has shifted back from many suburbs to urban areas in high growth cities such as San Francisco and Washington, D.C., the problem of housing affordability is sure to be the focus of ever more social, political, and academic attention. The papers presented as part of this panel will be published by the Fordham Urban Law Journal and cover a range of topic related to "Property and the Challenge of Housing Affordability."

    Papers from the program will be published in Fordham Urban Law Journal. 

    The section held a virtual business meeting in advance of the Annual Meeting.
