Courtney Anderson, assistant professor of law, teaches Law and Social Welfare and Property. Her legal experience has been focused in the area of transactional law and community and economic development. Her position at Georgia State Law supports the university’s Second Century Initiative, which focuses on interdisciplinary research into how law and policy might impact the social, economic, and environmental determinants of health, particularly among minority, low-income and vulnerable populations, and working with communities for favorable health outcomes.
Anderson’s research is focused on preserving affordable housing and eradicating the disparities in low-income and minority communities that exacerbate health issues. She is particularly interested in initiatives that pair community and economic development mechanisms with laws and policies to achieve health equity.
