Please join us for this all-day conference to discuss the impact of the Fair Housing Act over the last 50 years and what work remains to be done.

The symposium will feature Julian Castro, the former Housing and Urban Development Secretary under President Barack Obama, as our keynote presenter. Our distinguished panelists, both academics and practitioners, will reflect on the legislative history of the act, the far reaching effects of housing on educational opportunities, how the act is being implemented across various levels of government, and what the future holds for the Fair Housing Act.

The Cardozo Law Review was established in 1979 and consistently ranks among the top law journals in the country. It publishes six issues per year, which contain articles and student notes on a variety of legal topics. The Law Review is dedicated to advancing empirical, interdisciplinary, and philosophical scholarship, as well as exploring cutting-edge national issues.

The Floersheimer Center for Constitutional Democracy is the centerpiece for scholarship and conferences advancing the functioning of constitutional democracies in the United States and abroad. Established in 2000 through a generous gift from Dr. Stephen Floersheimer, the center supports research by scholars and policymakers, hosts speakers and conferences, issues publications, and provides financial support for visiting scholars as well as student projects.

The Cardozo Public Service Scholars Program prepares future lawyers for the practice of law in public service through a comprehensive program, throughout the duration of law school, which supports and encourages students in developing the skills necessary to serve as effective advocates and leaders.
