The Law of the Land - Fair Housing

Overview

Although the federal Fair Housing Act was enacted over 50 years ago, housing discrimination continues to be a problem in the country. Every year, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) investigates thousands of housing discrimination complaints based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, and familial status.

This course will review the history of fair housing legislation and examine current regulations set forth by the government to ensure equal rights in housing for all. Case Law will be examined as examples of how the law relates to reality.
