The Public Interest Committee’s goal is to support the housing needs of the people of New York State by educating and collaborating with the bar about a broad range of public policy issues as they relate to real property law. The Committee meets at least quarterly to discuss issues such as mortgage and tax foreclosure policy and practices, assisted and affordable housing, homelessness, zoning, fair housing, consumer issues, and prevention of lead paint poisoning. One of the Committee’s greatest strengths is that it provides a forum for interested attorneys to share information about these different public interest issues. If your heart is in working for the public good, the Public Interest Committee is the place to be. The Committee is always eager and very happy to have new members.
Committee membership is open to members of the Real Property Law Section.
