CAI Launches First Scholarly Journal Devoted to Homeowner/Condo Association Law

12/11/1997  -  Alexandria, VA

Constitutional challenges to covenants, disability laws and the evolution of retirement communities are among the issues explored in the inaugural issue of CAI's Journal of Community Association Law, which debuts in January. Published biannually in association with CAI's College of Community Association Lawyers, the Journal is the first scholarly publication on the rapidly expanding field of community association law.

CAI's Journal of Community Association Law includes timely legal research on vital community association issues written by leading experts in the field. In this first issue, Wayne S. Hyatt Esq., principal, Hyatt & Stubblefield P.C., Atlanta, and adjunct professor at Emory University School of Law, explores the implications of a court ruling that the "business judgement rule" applies to community associations. Amid growing numbers of constitutional challenges to community association covenants, Katharine Rosenberry surveys state and federal cases and offers defense tactics.

Edited by Marvin J. Nodiff Esq., a charter member of CAI's College of Community Association Lawyers, the Journal publishes practical articles useful to managers, board members and other professionals in the community association industry. Ellen Hirsch de Haan, a shareholder in the law firm of Becker & Poliakoff, St. Petersburg, Fla., guides community association managers through the challenges of effectively managing retirement communities and the special, changing needs of aging residents. Mary S. Howell, Esq., explores the impact of fair housing and disabilities regulations on community associations.

Finally, Michael C. Kim, partner, Arnstein & Lehr, Chicago, and a member of CAI's College of Community Association Lawyers, has compiled a selected bibliography of published articles on community association law.

The Community Associations Institute is a non profit association created in 1973 to educate and represent the nation's 150,000 community associations—condominium associations, homeowner associations and cooperatives. CAI members include community associations and the professionals who provide products and services to them.
