The importance of evaluating the full impacts of development on poverty and low income communities.

Marc is a professor of law at Savannah Law School and studies the impact that urban development and property ownership have on extreme poverty and city living. His current research focuses on the impact that diminished interests in property have on people living in extreme poverty environments – public housing, extremely low-income rentals, and those who have no home. His work has appeared in the New York Observer and The Savannah Morning News and been cited in numerous academic journals.
