The University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law will host the fifth annual Strategic Code Enforcement Management Academy (SCEMA) on June 24-25, 2021.  The two-day SCEMA program focuses local teams of government managers, attorneys, and community partners on the core principles and practices of strategic code enforcement tailored to the priorities and challenges confronting each teams’ community.  Strategic code enforcement is a cross-agency, data driven approach that leverages multiple partnerships to ensure compliance and enforcement actions are effective, efficient and equitable.  Embedded in the state and local policy power to protect public health, safety and security, such an approach requires the cooperation and coordination of the local public and public interest institutions and agencies whose decisions and actions are guided by sharing data and knowledge.

Team from the following cities will be participating in SCEMA 2021: Memphis, TN, St. Louis, MO, Dallas, TX, Rockford, IL, White Plains, NY, Syracuse, NY, Providence, RI, Baltimore, MD and Toledo, OH.  SCEMA is a collaboration of Memphis Law, Neighborhood Preservation, Inc., and The Urban Institute.  Professor Daniel Schaffzin and Adjunct Professor Steve Barlow, who together direct Memphis Law’s Neighborhood Preservation Clinic, are founding SCEMA faculty and will again serve as faculty for this year’s Academy.
