Civil Rights Litigation as a Tool for Social Change 

The expansion of the Civil Rights Litigation Clearinghouse at the University of Michigan Law School now includes an extensive archive of Gautreaux v. Chicago Housing Authority, one of the longest-running civil rights cases in the country. Panelists included Margo Schlanger, the Wade H. and Dores M. McCree Collegiate Professor of Law at the University of Michigan, and Norrinda Hayat, Associate Professor of Law and Director of the Civil Justice Clinic at Rutgers Law School. Cara Hendrickson, BPI Executive Director also participated as a panelist, and BPI Board Member Quinn Rallins served as moderator for this discussion about equity and justice in housing and the future of civil rights litigation as a mechanism for structural reform. 

This event was co-hosted by the Civil Rights Litigation Clearinghouse and the American Constitution Society.
