Virtual Practice Spotlight: Filing Lead Claims in Municipal Court

Learn to incorporate lead claims into your eviction defense work

Join us and Community Legal Services Staff Attorney Osarugue Grace Osa-Edoh for a training on incorporating lead claims into eviction defense through VIP.

 

Philadelphia’s lead laws and regulations can be useful tools when defending a VIP client in an eviction matter. This training and discussion will focus on the filing and hearing process in Municipal Court, consideration for different types of lead claims, the importance of this legal area, and current case law. We anticipate a surge in eviction hearings once courts re-open. This training will help equip you to advocate for your VIP clients in these cases through small-claim lead actions in Municipal Court.

Please join us and Community Legal Services Staff Attorney Osarugue Grace Osa-Edoh for a training and guided discussion on this topic.

Our noontime Practice Spotlights are the perfect way to overcome obstacles in your VIP cases, network with other volunteers, and deepen your commitment to expanding access to justice in Philadelphia.

This event will take place over Zoom, a free video-conferencing platform. Please RSVP below for the Zoom meeting information.
