Fair Housing Legal Support Center and Clinic at John Marshall Law School

The primary goal of John Marshall’s Fair Housing Legal Support Center is to educate the public about fair housing law and to provide legal assistance to those private or public organizations that seek to eliminate discriminatory housing practices. John Marshall's Fair Housing Legal Clinic was established in 1993 by co-founding Professors F. Wills Caruso and Michael P. Seng, and is one of the few law school clinics in the U.S. devoted exclusively to fair housing training and enforcement. The Clinic serves clients in the Chicago metropolitan area who have been illegally denied housing because of discrimination under federal, state, and local fair housing laws and ordinances. Most of these individuals would not otherwise have access to an attorney. The Clinic is also engaged in community outreach activities to inform consumers about fair housing laws and the work of the Clinic.
