ABA Journal of Affordable Housing & Community Development Law

Call for Papers

Affordable Housing and Community Development in an Age of Pandemic

Expressions of interest due no later than June 12, 2020

Drafts due July 15, 2020


The Journal of Affordable Housing & Community Development Law (the Journal) invites articles and essays on how affordable housing and community development practitioners have adapted to challenges of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19), as well as forward-looking responses and policies to the pandemic.  Topics covered could include changes and challenges in financing, developing, or managing affordable housing, as well as threats posed and opportunities emerging for the community development field.

For this issue, the Journal seeks wide participation and especially welcomes shorter essays (2,000–3,000 words) that reflect upon this unusual time.  Such essays may not necessarily require detailed citation but instead focus on memorializing efforts to respond to the coronavirus or framing an issue of ongoing importance.  In addition, the Journal will also continue to seek general essays (typically 2,500–5,000 words) or articles (typically 7,000–10,000 words) related to the Journal’s traditional subjects: affordable housing, fair housing and community/economic development.

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 submit a brief description of their proposals no later than June 12, 2020.  Submissions of final articles and essays are due by July 15, 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. Please do not hesitate to contact the Editor with any questions.
