Creighton University in Omaha was among 99 law schools recognized Friday by the Biden administration for their response to the U.S. attorney general’s call to address the housing and eviction crisis.
Attorney General Merrick Garland said he asked the legal community for help, and law students and lawyers across the country stepped up to take on cases.
In its assist, Creighton’s School of Law had students partner with the Volunteer Lawyers Project-Tenant Assistance Project.
“Our Jesuit mission calls us to serve others and pursue social justice, so we were drawn to answer the Attorney General’s call,” said Joshua Fershee, dean of the local law school. “It was a natural extension of the work being done in our legal clinic and pro bono program and I am proud of our students and faculty who stepped up.”
