Northeastern Law School Conference on Tackling the Urban Core Puzzle.

Northeastern Law School just announced a conference on the Urban Core as part of their Legal Scholarship 4.0 series. There is also a junior works-in-progress event associated with this conference (occurring on Halloween - spooky) but you better move quick because abstracts are due in two weeks with draft papers due by 9/9/15. See the website for details on the CFP and more.

From the Announcement:

Tackling the Urban Core Puzzle: October 29-31 in Boston

Even as American metropolises have begun to pull themselves out of the Great Recession, the neighborhoods at their centers often remain underdeveloped and impoverished. Entrenched sites of market failure and economic distress, such urban cores contribute significantly to the nation's worsening inequality gap. In our second annual Legal Scholarship 4.0 conference, Northeastern University School of Law invites you to join us in exploring and generating fresh research approaches with the potential to transform our cities.

 By examining a range of contemporary models aimed at improving worker participation, financial services, property access, economic competition and business and personal asset growth, we will explore new connections between law and development in the urban core.
