About this Project
Joint Project with the 10CORE Law Student Organization on Foreclosure
The co-sponsored project was titled “Combating Foreclosures and Mortgage Crisis in Communities of Color.” This project was an outgrowth of the 10CORE Project at Thomas M. Cooley Law School, and consisted of a series of educational panels in key cities that have some of the highest foreclosure rates in the country, especially in communities of color.
The primary goals of the Foreclosure & Mortgage Crisis Program were to:
- provide pro bono assistance to individuals and communities that are in the throes of the challenges of foreclosures and the mortgage crisis;
- educate the legal community and communities of color regarding strategies and resources that are available to help save homes from foreclosure; and
- train, educate and recruit law students and young lawyers to provide pro bono assistance to communities of color that have been plagued by foreclosures and the mortgage crisis.
