Homelessness and the Law

The sight of vulnerable homeless people sitting on pavements begging is an affront to a society which allows huge payments to a tiny minority of the privileged. What can be done to deal with the problem of homelessness? The answer is simple – provide more homes.

From the lawyer’s point of view, it must be pointed out that the law dealing with homlessness is notorious for its extreme complexity and lack of accessibility. It has become a lawyer’s paradise. Legal solutions for homelessness are at best marginal and at worst counter-productive. Homelessness, like poverty, is not a legal issue. It can be solved by providing homes and not by providing teams of well-paid lawyers.
