Housing, Racism to Be Explored at ABA Midyear Meeting

The housing crisis and the role of lawyers in securing housing justice; examining the psychology of prejudice; and insights into the new administration, Congress and the federal judiciary are among issues to be discussed in programs featured at the 2009 American Bar Association Midyear Meeting, Feb. 11 - 17 in Boston.

In addition to the more than 900 events, the ABA House of Delegates will consider policies affecting the legal rights of military personnel, immigrants, and the elderly; the criminal justice system treatment of juvenile sex offenders; habeas corpus petitions of detainees at the Guantanamo Navel Base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; and measures that would reduce harm and litigation after catastrophes.

A Paralegal's Blog will be covering the ABA Midyear Meeting on Friday, February 13. Keep reading for more information from Boston!
