We are seeking a diverse group of responsible, hardworking students with an interest in law, public service, and civil rights generally, and fair housing specifically. Housing segregation is a major problem in the Chicago Metropolitan area and this course analyses its causes and effects and remedies. The course also exposes the students to law school teaching.

The course is taught by Professor Michael Seng. Only twelve students will be selected to participate from colleges and universities across the Chicago Area.  Each student may earn a total of 3 credit hours of transferable academic credit, depending upon your school’s policies. Students will also receive a certificate from The John Marshall Law School upon successful completion of the program.  John Marshall will work with your students and administrators to facilitate the transfer and acceptance of academic credit for the program.

The Fair Housing/Fair Lending Course will take place in the Spring Semester of 2018. The course will be taught on Tuesday evenings from 6 p.m. to  9 p.m.  The course is fully funded by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. There is no cost to your institution or to your students. Attached you will find the application, the frequently asked questions for Faculty and Administrators, frequently asked questions for Students, the Informational Brochure and Reference Letter. We would be happy to also mail you hard copies of the attached documents for the course.

As Program Manager, I would be happy to visit your school to speak with any interested administrators, faculty members, classes, or student organizations about the Fair Housing/Fair Lending Course at The John Marshall Law School for college and university students.  Feel free to contact me by e-mail or telephone.

Paralegal Internship

PARALEGAL INTERNSHIP

Looking for 5-10 paralegal students to earn 8-20 internship hours on Saturday, October 21 and Sunday, October 22 from 10:00 – 5:00 p.m.  A possible third day of Saturday, October 28, may be needed as well.  Lunch and drinks will be provided. 

Need students to inventory items in storage unit and prepare typed list of contents.  The unit is located on Army Trail Road in Addison.  A minimum of 6 hours on site is required but we will accept anyone either of the available days.

The case involves a guardianship proceeding.  The pending petition for guardianship is for a 72 year old woman with a terminal brain tumor.  Her children have petitioned to be her guardian as has her boyfriend of 20 years.  The couple lived together for about 12 years and were court ordered to sell the house.  A moving company was hired to pack and move everything in to storage but nothing was inventoried to determine the contents owners.  The court is requiring that the storage units be inventoried so items can be divided and returned to their rightful owners.  The woman and her boyfriend are no longer together and cannot be in the same area at the same time.

If interested, please contact COD adjunct instructor and attorney, Terra Costa Howard at 630-886-6140 or lawyer@terrachoward.com.
