CLE: The Nuts & Bolts of Representing a Low-Income Tenant in Municipal Court

Eviction Defense 101

Most landlords in Philadelphia eviction proceedings have counsel, while many low-income tenants must go it alone. VIP volunteer attorneys can help tenants avoid homelessness and unfair judgments with just a few hours of their time.

Learn the basics of landlord/tenant procedure in Philadelphia and practical information on counseling your client, going to Municipal Court, and understanding Philly’s evolving housing landscape.

 

Please join Philadelphia VIP and Dechert LLP on March 8th from 9:30 am to 12:00 pm for a landlord/tenant CLE training.

This free training will be led by Jonathan Gaynor of Dechert and Tiffany Holland-McAnany of Community Legal Services. This training’s application for PA CLE credit is pending.

You may attend the event in person or virtually. RSVP below to attend. Please reach out to Allie Robinson with any questions or concerns.

We encourage you to sign up for a VIP landlord/tenant case before the training so you can follow along with your case file in hand. View all available cases here.
