Arizona State University's law school has opened a homeowner advocacy unit in its civil clinic in which law students will represent people who are the victims of mortgage fraud or are facing wrongful foreclosure.
The advocacy unit is a response to the foreclosure crisis and is funded through a three-year grant from the Arizona Attorney General's Office.
Those working in the unit also will make presentation on foreclosures and mortgage-related issues to community groups.
The unit accepts clients referred to it by the Arizona Foreclosure Task Force and by groups that work with distressed homeowners.
It began accepting referrals last week and already has a waiting list of potential clients.
