Established in 1993 by Professors F. Wills Caruso and Michael P. Seng, the Fair Housing Legal Clinic is one of the few law school clinics in the U.S. devoted exclusively to fair housing training and enforcement.

The Fair Housing Legal Clinic enable degree candidates to gain practical legal experience and bolster his or her resume at the same time. In addition to learning the substance of fair housing law, the clinic offers an opportunity to participate in federal court litigation and sometimes in state and administrative proceedings.

Student attorneys have a unique opportunity to participate in community outreach service and, along with clinic faculty and staff, regularly make general fair housing presentations to individuals, groups, and agencies, representing all protected classes under the Fair Housing Act, of their rights under the law.
