The University of Richmond School of Law’s annual Law Review Symposium on Oct. 5 will explore a variety of topics related to discrimination in housing and neighborhood education. The event coincides with the 50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act of 1968, which is the inspiration for the theme.

The day-long symposium will include a keynote presentation at 9:15 a.m. from former Virginia Governor and Richmond mayor, the Honorable L. Douglas Wilder. Other diverse scholars and housing activists will be featured throughout the day. A full schedule is available online.

“We are so excited for the law school community to come together with the Richmond community and our outstanding assembly of scholars to reflect upon and think about the precursors, impacts, and future role of the Fair Housing Act,” said Carly Celestino, the symposium editor of the Law Review.

The program will be held in the Law School Moot Courtroom. The symposium is free and open to the community, but registration is required.
