Housing Justice Clinic
The Housing Justice Clinic began in August 2022, growing out of the Civil Clinic’s involvement in assisting vulnerable tenants with housing related issues. Students in the Housing Justice Clinic provide limited scope representation for low-income tenants facing eviction hearings each week throughout the semester in collaboration with the Tenant Assistance Project. This work includes analyzing pleadings, counseling clients, negotiating with opposing counsel, and gaining hands-on courtroom experience. Students also have opportunities to engage in full-scope civil litigation in more complex landlord-tenant matters, which are selected by the faculty for potential litigation experience and maximum pedagogical benefit.
