The training will be presented by landlord/tenant law experts and Housing Court staff.  We are also honored to have a view from the bench presented by Housing Court Chief Justice, Timothy F. Sullivan.

The training and materials (Legal Tactics: Tenants’ Rights in Massachusetts, Judge David D. Kerman’s Bench Memorandum, a hard copy of the PowerPoint presentation and additional materials provided by the trainers) are FREE in exchange for a commitment to volunteer at six Lawyer for the Day sessions in the Northeast Housing Court (Lowell, Salem, Lynn or Lawrence) by May 17, 2018. Each session lasts approximately four hours. In lieu of volunteering, the training and materials fee is $250.
