Tim Iglesias regularly teaches Property Law, Land Use Law, Housing Discrimination, and Community Property. He is teaching Property Law at Boalt Hall during the Fall 2012 semester. His primary legal expertise is housing law with a focus on affordable housing and fair housing.
During law school he was a Stanford Public Service Fellow and President of the Stanford Public Interest Law Fund. From 1993 to 1994, he clerked for the late Judge Stanley A. Weigel of the Northern District of California. During 1994-1995 he was the first Pillsbury Madison Sutro Public Interest Fellow. From 1995-2001 he worked at the Non-Profit Housing Association of Northern California assisting non-profit developers obtain local government approvals for affordable housing developments. He has been teaching law since 2001, and is a Professor of Law at the University of San Francisco School of Law. He is a frequent organizer, moderator and panelist at conferences concerning housing issues.
Iglesias’ scholarship focuses on land use law and housing law and policy, especially affordable housing and fair housing. Some earlier projects clarified complex doctrines at the intersection of affordable housing and fair housing law. Others applied novel theories and strategies to enable practitioners to site affordable housing in the face of community opposition. More recently he has been exploring applications of neuroscience and cognitive psychology to law, especially housing law. Iglesias serves on several advisory committees, including the Leo T. McCarthy Center for Public Service and the Common Good and the Oakland Catholic Worker.
Iglesias is the co-editor and a chapter author of A Legal Guide to Affordable Housing, 2nd Edition (American Bar Association, 2011).
