Innovation and Change in Affordable Housing and Community Development

Drafts due  in February, 2020 (final drafts due March 1, 2010)


The Journal of Affordable Housing & Community Development Law (the Journal) invites articles and essays on the theme of innovation and change in affordable housing and community development law.  How are established forms of financing affordable housing changing?  Are project types changing and, if so, how?  How are community organizing strategies changing in light of technological and social shifts?  What should we make of corporate efforts to address affordable housing when governmental and market efforts do not work?  What other innovations and changes are occurring that the affordable housing and community development community must confront and address?

The Journal welcomes essays (typically 2,500–6,200 words) or articles (typically 7,000-10,000 words). In addition, the Journal welcomes articles and essays on any of the Journal’s traditional subjects: affordable housing, fair housing and community/economic development. Topics could include important developments in the field; federal, state, local and/or private funding sources; statutes, policies or regulations; and empirical studies.

The Journal is the nation’s only law journal dedicated to affordable housing and community development law.  The Journal educates readers and provides a forum for discussion and resolution of problems in these fields by publishing articles from distinguished law professors, policy advocates and practitioners.

Interested authors are encouraged to send an abstract describing their proposals. Submissions of final articles and essays are due by February 1, 2020. Please email abstracts and final drafts to the Journal’s Editor-in-Chief, Stephen R. Miller, at The Journal also accepts submissions on a rolling basis.
