Mark Bauer at Stetson University Law will make a presentation on the role of 55+ housing at the upcoming AALS Annual Meeting in New York City. In describing his topic, Professor Bauer comments: "Such housing communities are exempt from civilian rights laws and almost any substantive rules. Yet it is questionable whether strong benefits really accrue to elders."
His presentation will likely draw upon his recent scholarship, including "'Peter Pan' as Public Policy: Should Fifty-Five-Plus Age-Restricted Communities Continue to be Exempt from Civil Rights Laws and Substantive Federal Regulation," recently published in University of Illinois' Elder Law Journal.
Professor Bauer has broad scholarship interest, including antitrust, administrative law, property and financial advocacy. He has also served as the supervisor of Stetson's Elder Consumer Protection Law internship program. His presentation will be part of the Aging and Law Section meeting for the American Association of Law Schools' Annual Meeting to be held in New York City from January 3-5. Professor Baur is the incoming chair-elect for the Section, with duties to include planning the program for 2015.
