Home foreclosures continue to plague the U.S. economy and wreck havoc in the lives of individuals, families and communities. Attempts to resolve the foreclosure crisis have sparked government programs, lender initiatives and multiple lawsuits. On April 13, 2012, the Berkeley Business Law Journal (BBLJ) and the Berkeley Center for Law, Business and the Economy (BCLBE) will host a Symposium on “The Foreclosure Crisis: Challenges and Solutions to the Mortgage Meltdown” Speakers from UC Berkeley will join other scholars, business leaders and policymakers to address what the public and private sectors should and could do to resolve the seemingly endless stream of home foreclosures and avoid their future repetition.
Topics to be addressed will include:
• The current state of the foreclosures and their impact on the residential market
• The recent mortgage foreclosure settlement between federal regulators, all 50 states’ attorneys general, and the largest loan servicers
• Lender and government initiatives to prevent foreclosures; and
• How adequate financing can be made available to home purchasers without repeating the foreclosure crisis.
Friday, April 13, 2012 International House
8:30 am to 1:30 pm 2299 Piedmont Ave – Berkeley, CA
