The federal and North Carolina State Fair Housing Acts prohibit discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, and disability. Although sexual orientation and gender identity are not explicitly protected classes, there are a number of provisions of the Act that have particular importance for members of the LGBTQ community.
This Continuing Legal Education program will focus on provisions of the state and federal fair housing laws that can be of particular relevance to those representing LGBTQ individuals.
The event will provide 4 CLE credits, including 1 CLE of ethics credit, pending approval from the State Bar.
Cost: $85.00, including continental breakfast, box lunch, and 4 CLE credits (3 general credits plus 1 ethics credit) pending approval.
Early-bird rate: $65.00 for registrations before January 27, 2017.
The program is sponsored by the Fair Housing Project of Legal Aid of North Carolina; Charlotte/Mecklenburg Community Relations Commission; City of Durham Department of Neighborhood Improvement Services, Human Relations Division; Equality NC; the Greensboro Human Relations Department; LGBTQ Center of Durham; North Carolina Association of Women Attorneys; North Carolina Human Relations Commission; North Carolina Justice Center; Orange County Department of Housing, Human Rights & Community Development; OUTLAW Elon Law School Chapter; and Winston-Salem Human Relations Commission.
