Opportunities at NHLP


The National Housing Law Project (NHLP) is currently accepting applications from law students  for two (2) fall semester 2023 clerkship positions.  

Over fifty years ago, the Fair Housing Act and the Housing and Urban Development Act were  signed into law to expand housing opportunities for marginalized communities and to redress  racially motivated, discriminatory laws and policies. Unfortunately, far too many of our neighbors  continue to face discriminatory policies that are oppressive and create extraordinary hurdles to  accessing affordable, clean, decent, and sanitary housing. 

Where we live has a powerful impact on our educational opportunities, employment opportunities,  and our mental and physical health. The current public health crisis and the ongoing organizing for  a more just union have only reinforced the importance of having a place to call home. To read more about the program please click here.
