Wayne Law Warrior Housing Corps

The Wayne Law Warrior Housing Corps Learning Community (LC) provides an opportunity for students to work under the supervision of experienced attorneys from our partner legal service providers and community organizations to address the ongoing housing crises in Detroit and its surrounding areas. Students will participate in events and service-learning projects relating to eviction, rental housing, and other housing issues that affect Detroit. The semester will begin with a bus tour visiting locations key to Detroit’s housing history and exploring the racial injustices that led us to where we are today. Students will learn to identify and demonstrate understanding of housing issues, explain the complexities of socioeconomic challenges, and apply this knowledge to community situations. The Wayne Law Warrior Housing Corps LC is open to all students, but priority will be given to students that have declared the B.A. in Law or Minor in Law. This LC is tied to the fall course LEX 5000: Law in Social Context.
