WHEN: Noon to 1:30 p.m. Thursday, October 14, 2021 via ZOOM | MCLE: 1.5 (1.0 Skills, 0.5 Ethics) | COST: FREE to any lawyer who plans to VOLUNTEER with the VLP Eviction Defense Program at least twice in the upcoming calendar year otherwise $25 for those not able to commit to volunteering at this time.
NOW is the time to brush up or build on your courtroom and negotiation skills. You can be a part of the help our community needs to avoid a tsunami of evictions when various federal and state protections put in place during the height of the COVID pandemic lift this fall.
This CLE covers the steps of an eviction proceeding and also addresses courtroom skills and negotiation strategies, tenant defenses (including COVID-related defenses), ethics of limited representation for pro bono attorneys, and ethics of settlement negotiations. You’ll come out of this with greater confidence and ability to handle tenant defense of eviction cases as well as answer tenant rights questions as part of VLP’s virtual Tenant Rights Clinic.
