9:00 AM – 3:30 PM

Indianapolis, Indiana


The Fair Housing Center of Central Indiana and Indiana Disability Rights are sponsoring a Fair Housing Legal Seminar on Friday, December 14, 2018 at the John Boner Neighborhood Centers in Indianapolis from 9:00 AM-3:30 PM. The featured speaker will be Chris Brancart of Brancart & Brancart.

This legal seminar is designed to give a detailed overview of the federal Fair Housing Act, its regulations, and case law of interest. At this seminar, attendees will learn about fair housing concepts, protected classes, covered transactions, reasonable accommodations and modifications, theories of proof, damages and other relief, current litigation and trends, key HUD regulations, and the role of HUD and DOJ. Although this training is designed for practicing attorneys, it is open to all for registration.

Chris Brancart, with his wife Elizabeth, formed Brancart & Brancart in 1989, a law firm specializing in fair housing litigation throughout the United States. Together they have clarified and expanded fair housing rights through timely litigation and the generous sharing of their knowledge and expertise. In addition to representing plaintiffs in several leading cases, Chris and Elizabeth have conducted fair housing training courses for attorneys throughout the nation. Since 1989, Brancart & Brancart has been litigating housing discrimination cases on behalf of plaintiffs in federal and state courts. The firm is dedicated to promoting enforcement of the federal Fair Housing Act and related state laws through litigation and advocacy, and by providing education, training, and support to fair housing attorneys and advocates throughout the country. The firm’s active fair housing cases involve issues of discrimination on the basis of race, national origin, familial status, disability, religion, and gender, including sexual harassment. The firm also handles discriminatory and predatory lending cases. The firm represents individuals who are victims of housing discrimination and nonprofit agencies seeking to enforce fair housing laws. Chris has litigated several fair housing cases in Indiana on behalf of the Fair Housing Center of Central Indiana and individual plaintiffs.
