'Vacant Property Summit: Legal Tools to Spur Renewal of Privately Owned Vacant Property'

Thursday, 20 October, 2016

Sponsored by Legal Services of Eastern Missouri, Saint Louis University School of Law Legal Clinics, Saint Louis Association of Community Organizations, and Thompson Coburn LLP, the "Vacant Property Summit" will take place at 8 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 20, in Scott Hall.

About the Summit:
Vacant and abandoned properties bring with them a multitude of challenges and opportunities for neighborhoods. Vacancy has many causes and contributing factors, and it calls for focused and innovative solutions. Through the work of local government officials and the nonprofit sector, St. Louis has already begun to focus on the need for solutions. This event will further the conversation around solutions, with a particular focus on a case study that illustrates how lawyers, neighborhoods, and others can utilize legal tools to work together in strategic ways.
