Alexander Comments on New Housing Laws

Print Page

By April L. Bogle

Emory Law Professor Frank S. Alexander comments in the Indianapolis Star on a new Indiana state law that pressures errant landlords to clean up their vacant properties or face state take-over, and in The Guardian on a new local regulation banning unmarried couples with more than one child from occupying homes in the town of Black Jack, Missouri. Alexander is interim dean of Emory University School of Law and co-director of the Center for the Study of Law and Religion, where his research focuses on how housing laws are defining families. 



The CSLR is home to world class scholars and forums on the religious foundations of law, politics, and society. It offers expertise on how the teachings and practices of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam have shaped and continue to transform the fundamental ideas and institutions of our public and private lives. The scholarship of CSLR faculty provides the latest perspectives, while its conferences and public forums foster reasoned and robust public debate.
