This class will provide an overview of U.S. federal housing laws, regulations, and policies, with a focus on fair housing and fair lending. Students will examine civil rights litigation strategies and compliance with federal regulations from the perspective of lawyers, government officials, developers, fair housing organizations, tenants, and lending institutions. Additionally, we will discuss the intersection between housing discrimination, segregation, and the effects of gentrification. Novel and complex issues, such as civil rights compliant algorithms, and leading cases in civil rights housing litigation and investigatory strategies will be reviewed.
