Pro Bono Training
North Shore Community Action Programs, Inc. (NSCAP), Northeast Legal Aid, Inc. (NLA) and the Northeast Justice Center (NJC) will be conducting a half-day training on basic landlord/tenant law.
Wednesday, May 25, 2016
12:00 PM to 4:30 PM
The training will be held at the Northeast Housing Court, Ruane Judicial Center, 56 Federal Street, 4th floor, Courtroom D, Salem, MA 01970. Complimentary lunch will be served.
The training will be presented by experts in landlord/tenant law, a Housing Specialist (mediator), the Tenancy Preservation Program clinicians, and the Assistant Clerk of the Court. We are honored to have a view from the bench presented by a Judge from the Northeast Housing Court.
The training and all materials (Legal Tactics: Tenants’ Rights in Massachusetts, 2008, Judge David D. Kerman’s Bench memorandum, a hard copy of the PowerPoint presented and additional materials provided by the trainers) are FREE in exchange for a commitment to volunteer at six Lawyer of the Day sessions in the Northeast Housing Court between now and May 25, 2017. Each Lawyer of the Day session lasts approximately four hours.
