Urban Law Journal Symposium
How the Poor Still Pay More:
A Reexamination of Urban Poverty
in the Twenty-First Century

Friday, April 7, 2017
10:30 a.m. check-in & coffee
11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. program

Fordham Law School
150 W 62nd Street | Moot Courtroom

Inspired by David Caplovitz’s The Poor Pay More, this year’s Symposium explores how costs of living prevent upward mobility for low-income city dwellers. Caplovitz examined the systemic trends keeping underprivileged New Yorkers in poverty. The fiftieth anniversary of his work is an opportunity to reassess his provocative predictions. We will examine how the urban poor still struggle to afford the essentials—food, healthcare, housing—and how consumer financing and the criminal justice system intensify their struggle. 

This event is free and open to the public.


CLE credit for the program has been approved in accordance with the requirements of the New York State CLE Board for (4.5) professional practice credit hours. The content of the course is appropriate for transitional and nontransitional attorneys.

co-sponsored by the Stein Center for Law and Ethics, Urban Law Center, Fordham Urban Consortium, and Center on Race, Law, and Justice
