Featured Story

The Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law will be holding a webinar entitled Ensuring Fair Housing for People with Criminal Records: A Conversation with HUD on Wednesday, October 26, 2016 from 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm Eastern. 

Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development issued groundbreaking guidance stating that admission denials, evictions, and other adverse housing decisions based on a person’s criminal record may constitute racial discrimination under the Fair Housing Act. The webinar will feature an overview of the guidance, an interview with a HUD official, and a live Q&A session including questions from attendees. 

Discussion Groups and Collaboration

E-mail discussion groups have been set up in the many areas of the law. These groups are a great way to keep up with things and interact with your colleagues. You can discuss recent developments in the law, ask and answer questions, or just read the postings of others to learn about the issues people are working on.
