Housing Rights Clinic

The Housing Rights Clinic provides students with opportunities to represent clients facing housing instability, including homelessness, eviction, foreclosure, and threats to housing like uninhabitability and harassment.  Students will get hands-on experience interviewing clients, drafting pleadings, propounding and responding to discovery, motion practice, negotiation, and trial experience.  Students will also have the opportunity to conduct outreach and education and help tenants organize and pursue their housing rights.  The class will meet once a week as a group to learn about housing law and advocacy and to discuss case management and strategize on negotiation, litigation, and trial.  The class meets a second time each week during set office hours to receive one-on-one training from the professor and litigation team on their caseload.

No Prerequisites.
