Virtual Training: The Nuts & Bolts of Representing a Tenant in Municipal Court

Help Philadelphians avoid homelessness

Over 90% of tenants in Philadelphia lack representation in their eviction hearings, while over 80% of landlords have attorneys to represent their interests. This training aims to equip volunteers with the tools needed to expand access to justice in this critical area.


At this training, led by Philadelphia VIP Staff Attorney Liz Tarloski and Community Legal Services Attorneys Mike Carroll and Vikram Patel, you will gain an overview of landlord-tenant law and practical information for representing a client in a landlord-tenant dispute in the Philadelphia courts.

Due to office closures and in the interest of protecting our community’s health, this training will take place via Zoom. Please RSVP below for the Zoom meeting information.
