Kathleen Morris Publishes Book Chapter in How Cities Will Save the World

Professor Kathleen Morris has published a book chapter entitled "Cities Seeking Justice: Local Government Litigation in the Public Interest," in "How Cities Will Save the World" (ed. R. Brescia, J. Marshall, Ashgate 2016). This book chapter explains that an increasing number of city law offices across the U.S. view themselves as platforms for public interest work rather than mere defense litigation firms. "How Cities Will Save the World" brings together authors with frontline experience in the fields of city redevelopment, urban infrastructure, healthcare, planning, immigration, historic preservation, and local government administration. They not only offer their ground level view of threats caused by climate change, population shifts, and economic inequality, but they provide solution-driven narratives identifying promising innovations to help cities tackle this century's greatest adversities. The book is intended for scholarly and non-scholarly audiences alike.
