Finding affordable housing is a growing challenge across the U.S. — Arizona is no exception — and that is related to the stark number of evictions being reported.

As part of taking on that problem, the University of Arizona’s Rogers College of Law is teaming up with Brigham Young University’s LawX Legal Design Lab to try to find solutions to decreasing evictions — with an initial focus on Arizona and Utah.

Stacy Butler came on The Show to talk about the early stages of the program and the class a group of UA students will be able to take. She’ll lead the class and is director of the UA’s Innovation for Justice Program. Her BYU colleague Kimball D. Parker will run the LawX side.
