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.
She was a clinical fellow with the Harrison Institute for Affordable Housing and Community Development Clinic at Georgetown University Law Center, where she represented low-income tenant associations in purchasing and rehabilitating multifamily housing units. Prior to joining the Harrison Institute, Anderson worked in the real estate group at Sidley Austin LLP, where her practice had an emphasis on corporate and financing transactions.
Anderson received an LL.M. with distinction from Georgetown University Law Center in 2012. She graduated from Harvard Law School in 2006, and summa cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh in 2003.
