Event Details

Fair Housing Header 2


Suffolk University Law School, in partnership with the City of Boston, has received a generous grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to explore and combat housing discrimination in greater Boston.  The Suffolk University Law School Housing Discrimination Testing Program will work with students and community partners to perform discrimination tests in greater Boston, educate students about Fair Housing, and evaluate current housing policies.

The program kicks off with a luncheon event on Wednesday, September 12, at 12pm at Suffolk University Law School
.  The luncheon is part of a Fair Housing conference SULS is co-sponsoring with HUD and the Boston Fair Housing Commission. 

Scheduled speakers and panelists include:

  • Camille Nelson
    Dean, Suffolk University Law School
  • Thomas Menino
    Mayor, City of Boston
  • Martha Coakley
    Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
  • John Trasviña
    Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, HUD
  • F. Willis Caruso
    Co-Executive Director, Fair Housing Legal Support Center, John Marshall School of Law

Students and alumni in the testing program will gain real-world legal experience and access to local officials, community groups, and nonprofit organizations as they test for discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, religion, disability, LGBT status, source of income, and familial status.

The program continues Suffolk Law's longstanding tradition of active community advocacy and its strong partnership with the City of Boston.

The public is invited to attend Wednesday's luncheon, but note that space is limited.
