The conference seeks to foster discussion, debate and analysis of the legal issues, social impact, and economic realities that underlie the cases that come before Housing Court judges. Conference panels will look at the Court's history and challenges, and will discuss prospects and recommendations for its future. Panelists will include prominent and experienced attorneys, judges, and academics, and will be drawn from both the tenant and landlord bars, government, and advocacy organizations.
