Heather K. Way directs the Entrepreneurship and Community Development Clinic, which delivers transactional legal assistance to small businesses, nonprofit organizations, and community groups in Texas. Way studies and writes about the creation of equitable and inclusive communities, with a focus on: affordable housing, gentrification, problem properties (including code enforcement), land title issues, informal housing, seller financing, and housing preservation. In addition, Way is the founder and steering committee member of the UT Opportunity Forum, an interdisciplinary collaborative of faculty at the University of Texas at Austin working on fostering equitable communities.

Way has worked in the fields of community development and affordable housing law since 1997, starting with a Skadden Fellowship at Legal Aid of Central Texas. While at Legal Aid, she founded Texas Community Building with Attorney Resources, a statewide program that has delivered millions of dollars in pro bono legal assistance to CDCs and other nonprofit organizations. After graduating from UT Law, Way clerked for the Honorable William Wayne Justice of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.

Recent writings include Real Property for the Real World, a book of hands-on case studies for property law courses based on real cases and Protecting Homebuyers in Low-Income Communities: Evaluating the Success of Texas Legislative Reforms in the Texas Informal Homeownership Market, which examines contract for deed regulations. 

Way is the 2014 recipient of the Faculty Excellence in Public Interest Award from Texas Law Fellowships. She is also the recipient of the Outstanding "Houser" Award from the Texas Low Income Housing Information Service and was recognized as an Austin Affordable Housing Hero by Interfaith Action of Central Texas. Back when she was young, Way was honored as the Outstanding Young Lawyer of Texas by the State Bar of Texas Young Lawyers Association, and one of the Top 40 Lawyers Under 40 by the Texas Lawyer.   (
