Housing Landlord-Tenant Law 101

Wednesday, August 5, 2020 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM
VLP - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Description:

Over the past two decades, volunteer lawyers and law students with the Volunteer Lawyers Project (VLP) have passed through the Boston Housing Court, offering their assistance to unrepresented tenants and landlords on Eviction Day. Although things look differently now, VLP's Housing work is still going strong! VLP has been successfully running a Virtual Lawyer for the Day Clinic for three months.

As long time partners of the Lawyer for the Day Program, we are looking for more pro bono support as we prepare for the end of the eviction moratorium on October 17th. This training is the first step to becoming a Housing Court Lawyer for the Day volunteer and will provide you the necessary information for getting started! You will learn the basics of housing court, the types of cases that VLP sees, and the legal arguments they often use. It's the perfect introduction if you're new to housing or a great refresher for those of you who would like to be up-to-date.
