As the groundbreaking anti-foreclosure work by Harvard Law School students continues to land significant victories for homeowners in Massachusetts, a recent conference to spread the Harvard model drew more than 150 lawyers, law students and community organizers from around the country who want to halt foreclosures in their own communities. The second annual Harvard Law School “Community Responses to the Foreclosure Crisis” conference, organized by the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau, ran for three days and included panel discussions and small, interactive workshops where participants received practical advice for fighting foreclosures. The conference was designed to share the innovative strategy devised by HLS students and their community partners, including City Life/Vida Urbana and Greater Boston Legal Services. The multipronged strategy relies on neighborhood canvassing, attempting to change the law by bringing cases before the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, drafting new laws to better protect tenants, landing significant verdicts against banks for not taking care of foreclosed-on properties, and helping people buy back foreclosed-on homes at prices they can afford. Among this year’s speakers was Nick Hartigan ’09, a former Harvard Legal Aid Bureau student who in 2008 co-founded Project No One Leaves with David Haller ’09.
