Housing and economic development law concerns policy, advocacy, and litigation regarding affordable housing, poverty, and community economic development. Lawyers in housing and economic development may serve clients dealing with unfair housing issues by helping them through the litigation or negotiation process, or be involved in responsible financial service-related policy work. These fields are closely intertwined, and frequently work together in advocacy campaign coalitions. Lawyers in housing and economic development often work in non-profit organizations or with federal, state and local government agencies.
