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, presented on a panel at the biennial Practicing Public Interest Law in the South (PPILS) Conference on Oct. 20. The event was hosted by the George Barrett Social Justice Program at Vanderbilt Law School.

The topic of the panel on which Professor Haber served was “Economic Justice and Barriers to Entrepreneurship and Wealth Creation in Underserved Communities.”

The PPILS Conference brings together lawyers pursuing innovative litigation strategies addressing prevalent social justice issues in the South with legal academics writing on related topics, with the hope that each group’s work will inform the other’s and lasting collaborations may be formed.

This year’s conference focused on three themes: (1) new movements for bail reform; (2) access to justice for immigrants in detention; and (3) economic justice and barriers to entrepreneurship and wealth creation in underserved communities.
