The Project

I will work with the Center for Conflict Resolution and Cook County Courts to help implement the new foreclosure mediation program by mediating cases, training volunteers, and evaluating the program. As the foreclosure crisis impacts Chicago families, an increasing number of individuals represent themselves in foreclosures and face difficulties negotiating with lenders in court. I anticipate the fellowship will alleviate this, increasing the amount of settlements in foreclosure cases and helping preserve homeownership.
