Introducing James J. Kelly, Jr.

Kelly We are delighted to introduce Professor James J. Kelly, Jr. as a guest blogger.  Prof. Kelly is an Assistant Professor of Law and Director of the Community Development Clinic at the University of Baltimore School of Law.  From his bio:

Prior to joining the faculty, Professor Kelly worked, as Executive Director of Save A Neighborhood, Inc. and Legal Consultant for Baltimore's Project 5000, to assist the City and community groups in acquiring clear title to vacant houses and vacant lots. He previously worked as a Staff Attorney for the Community Law Center, serving Baltimore nonprofits in their community revitalization efforts. Prior to moving to Baltimore in 1999, he also represented and counseled tenants and tenant groups for the Northern Manhattan Improvement Corp., where his work was funded by the Skadden Fellowship Foundation.

Prof. Kelly has published several interesting articles in the area of land use and community development, including the forthcoming Land Trusts that Conserve Communities, which we posted last week.  His clinical and policy work has also been significant, and I'm suspecting we might hear something about that soon.
