Michael Haber, Associate Clinical Professor of Law and Attorney-in-Charge, Community and Economic Development Clinic

Associate Clinical Professor Michael Haber, attorney-in-charge of the Community and Economic Development Clinic, co-presented a continuing legal education program on Oct. 3 at the 2018 New York State Bar Association Legal Assistance Partnership Conference, “Uniting for Justice.” The conference participants were statewide civil legal services leaders.

The topic of the program was “Best Practices in Community Economic Development Law.” Professor Haber and his co-presenters discussed best practices in successfully developing and operating a community development practice.

Program Description
Best Practices in Community Economic Development Law — Community economic development practices are popping up as an increasingly common area of practice within many legal service agencies and law school clinics. But what makes a successful community development practice and how does this practice translate across New York’s varying geographical areas? The panelists, representing community development practices from New York City, Westchester, the Capital Region, Long Island, and Western New York, will discuss best practices in successfully developing and operating a community development practice. The panelists will focus on crucial topics, such as: (1) What legal work do community development practices concentrate on and how do they advance access to justice; (2) How do community development practices differ between law school clinical settings and the legal services setting, and; (3) How do community development practices and clinics utilize pro bono partnerships to achieve client and program goals. Attendees will complete the workshop with a better understanding of what community economic development practices look like throughout New York State and how the practice can be incorporated into their organization.
