The Housing Justice Law clinic is a fast-paced, client-centered environment. We get around 20-30 calls per day from tenants. Clinic students work directly with clients and listen to them describe their housing issues. After an intake interview, the student discusses the case with the supervising faculty member and they work together to develop a plan of attack for the client’s issue. The student then talks to the client about the plan, and they execute it together.
Students are comfortable asking questions and getting one-on-one guidance. They learn how to quickly identify key legal issues from intake interviews, and practice negotiation to resolve landlord-tenant conflicts.
Housing Justice Law clinic students can:
- Work with clients
- Research case law
- Draft contracts
- Represent clients in court
