Summary: John Marshall Law School will start offering a new course for undergraduates regarding fair housing and fair lending laws.

Starting this fall, John Marshall Law School will be offering a special course for undergraduates seeking to learn more about fair housing and fair lending laws. The law school’s Fair Housing Legal Support Center is armed with an Education and Outreach Initiative grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to educate undergrads in a course that can go towards their degree, according to report from EIN Newsdesk.

The grant will provide scholarships for students to take the course that can count towards their undergraduate degree. The Center hopes to properly educate the students and future advocates on how to fight discrimination still existing in housing today and how to educate others about fair-housing laws.

The Center ran the program during the current Spring 2018 semester by selecting 26 students from Concordia University Chicago, DePaul University School for New Learning, Dominican University, Elmhurst College, Harold Washington College, Illinois Institute for Technology, Johnson and Wales University, Lewis University, McGill University, North Central College, Northeastern Illinois University, Robert Morris University, Roosevelt University, Triton College, University of Chicago and the University of Illinois at Chicago.

The participating students are required to help the Center staff make presentations at local schools, community groups and senior organizations. The presentations they give are made to educate other students, professors and community members about housing rights. The program also gives the students opportunities to build their public speaking skills.
