Housing Court Lawyer for the Day

Assisting Unrepresented Landlords and Tenants

BBA Lawyer for the Day in the Boston Housing Court.

Over the past two decades, volunteer lawyers and law students have passed through the Boston Housing Court, offering their assistance to unrepresented tenants and landlords on Eviction Day. Since May 1999, volunteers have helped more than 18,000 individuals. As a volunteer attorney for this program, you will get out from behind your desk and provide access to justice to pro se litigants through advice, mediation, and case litigation.
