Interest Committee’s goal is to support the housing needs of the people of New
York State by educating and collaborating with the bar about a broad range of
public policy issues as they relate to real property law. The Committee meets
at least quarterly to discuss issues such as mortgage and tax foreclosure
policy and practices, assisted and affordable housing, homelessness, zoning,
fair housing, consumer issues, and prevention of lead paint poisoning. One of
the Committee’s greatest strengths is that it provides a forum for interested
attorneys to share information about these different public interest
issues. If your heart is in working for the public good, the Public
Interest Committee is the place to be. The Committee is always eager and very
happy to have new members.
Committee membership is open to members of the Real Property Law Section.
