New This Week:

Community Lawyering & Nuisance Vacant Properties

When communities across Baltimore were frustrated with the number of nuisance, vacant properties across the city, Community Law Center worked with them to tackle the problem. In this great piece of community lawyering on tax sales and public nuisances, the center worked with the communities on many fronts, including legislative and litigation victories. Robin Jacobs, the former director of strategic legal services projects at the center, describes the campaign's successes, challenges, and lessons in this month's advocacy story, Community-Led Code Enforcement: Empowering Communities to Reverse the Tide of Disinvestment.
