Update: April 15 Program on "What Should We Do About the Mortgage and Foreclosure Crisis"

The Templeton Debate and Lecture Series on Freedom

co-sponsored by the Houston Lawyers and South Texas College of Law Students Chapters of The Federalist Society


Professor Zywicki will be exploring the causes of the mortgage crisis and the subsequent causes and responses to the resulting foreclosure crisis. In particular, the presentation will examine the economic and legal factors that led to the real estate and mortgage boom and the economic and legal factors that have caused the foreclosure crisis, including differences in state laws that have exacerbated the foreclosure crisis. Finally, Professor Zywicki will discuss various proposals to respond to the crisis, including proposed changes to the bankruptcy laws, federal regulation of consumer credit, and related ideas.
