April 10, 2023


As part of its Fair Housing Month commemoration, the Fair Housing Justice Center (FHJC) is providing legal training to attorneys who are interested in representing FHJC clients with housing discrimination complaints. Other attorneys or advocates are also invited to attend the training, which will take place via Zoom webinar on Monday April 24 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM EDT.

Co-sponsored by CUNY School of Law and Latham & Watkins LLP, this training will provide an overview of local, state, and federal fair housing laws and discuss elements of causes of action, use of fair housing “testing” evidence and choice of forum and remedies. Attorneys who receive FHJC referrals will be provided ongoing litigation support.

Instructors Diane Houk (Emery Celli Brinckerhoff Abady Ward & Maazel LLP) and Mariann Wang (Cuti Hecker Wang LLP) are experienced civil rights attorneys who have been enforcing fair housing laws in the New York City area for decades. They will be joined by FHJC Executive Director/General Counsel Elizabeth Grossman.

This CLE program is approved for both experienced and newly admitted attorneys. Consistent with NY State regulations, CLE credit will be offered only to those attorneys completing the entire session; attorneys attending only part of a session are not eligible for partial credit. Attorneys arriving late are welcome to attend the program but will not be eligible for credit.

The training is being provided for free, but registration is required. To register, click HERE or visit https://bit.ly/FHJCApr24Webinar.

For questions regarding CLE credits, please email ny.mcle@lw.com. For reasonable accommodation requests, please contact FHJC Community Engagement Coordinator Craig Waletzko at cwaletzko@fairhousingjustice.org.

This event is made possible with funding from a Private Enforcement Initiative (PEI) grant received from  the Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP) administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

The mission of the FHJC, a nonprofit civil rights organization, is to eliminate housing discrimination; promote policies and programs that foster open, accessible, and inclusive communities; and strengthen enforcement of fair housing laws in the New York City region.
