The Community Reinvestment Act: Still Relevant at 30?
The Community Reinvestment Act: Still Relevant at 30? issue features scholarship from the participants of a symposium held at New York Law School in October 2007. Symposium panelists examined whether the Community Reinvestment Act is a relic of a bygone era or whether its protections can (and should) be extended to continue the democratization of capital into the twenty-first century. Among the papers is an article calling on Congress to enact the CRA Modernization Act of 2007 as well as a student-written article arguing for courts not to limit the use of FOIA requests to obtain information regarding a bank’s lending and investment practices.
