About the Authors
Stefan H. Krieger
Professor Krieger specializes in the areas of housing and community development. Professor Krieger and his students in the Law Reform Advocacy Clinics have represented numerous tenants and community groups in attempts to improve low-income housing in Nassau County. Recently, Professor Krieger and Clinic students won a major victory in the New York Court of Appeals protecting the rights of tenants to proper notice before eviction. The Clinic now represents Latino tenants in a building in Farmingdale who have filed a housing discrimination case in federal court challenging the plans of the Village and a developer to displace all the occupants and build luxury apartments. In 2008, representing a tenants advocacy group, the Clinic won a significant victory in the New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, invalidating high rent guidelines for approximately 12,000 tenants in Nassau County.
Professor Krieger's scholarly interests are in the areas of litigation strategy and legal education. He has published numerous articles on legal reasoning and pedagogy.
