Facing Foreclosure Alone: The Continuing Crisis inLegal Representation
By Nabanita Pal

 ABOUT THE BRENNAN CENTER FOR JUSTICE
Te Brennan Center or Justice at New York University School o Law is a non-partisan public policy and law institutethat ocuses on the undamental issues o democracy and justice. Our work ranges rom voting rights to campaign f-nance reorm, rom racial justice in criminal law to Constitutional protection in the fght against terrorism. A singularinstitution – part think tank, part public interest law frm, part advocacy group – the Brennan Center combines scholar-ship, legislative and legal advocacy, and communications to win meaningul, measurable change in the public sector.
 ABOUT THE BRENNAN CENTER’S JUSTICE PROGRAM
Te Brennan Center’s Justice Program pursues justice system reorms designed to reduce the “justice gap,” the distancebetween the nation’s promise o equal justice and the reality that people o color and low-income litigants ace in ourcourts. We work to achieve a justice system in which the ability o people to rely on courts and other agencies to securethe rule o law and prevent harms is not controlled by wealth, ethnicity, immigration status or the community rom which they come.
