John Marshall Fair Housing/Fair Lending Course

John Marshall Fair Housing/Fair Lending Course

On behalf of The John Marshall Law School Fair Housing Legal Support Center, I would like to invite your students to apply to the John Marshall Fair Housing/Fair Lending Course.  The course is open to all college and university students in the Chicago Metro Area. 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.

Applications can be downloaded here: John Marshall Fair Housing/Fair Lending Course.
