D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center Training: The Impact of COVID-19 on Landlord Tenant Practice in the District of Columbia Webinar

  • Training (non-CLE)
  • Housing

Shockingly, more than 90% of the tenant defendants in D.C.’s Landlord/Tenant Court routinely appear in court without counsel.  Evictions lead to homelessness.  With such high stakes, legal representation in landlord/tenant matters can make a huge difference in the lives of individuals and families.

This training will feature a pre-recorded training on Landlord Tenant Practice in D.C. and a live webinar to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on landlord tenant matters. It is designed to equip attorneys who have had little or no experience in landlord tenant matters to competently and comfortably handle these matters for pro bono clients. The training will focus primarily on proceedings in the District of Columbia involving indigent or low-income families.

The Impact of COVID-19 on Landlord Tenant Practice training will cover:
Overview of Landlord/Tenant Court
Overview of Substantive Landlord and Tenant Law
Complaints, Pleadings and Pre-trial Procedures
Eviction Procedures
Public and Subsidized Housing Issues
Rent Control
Impact of COVID-19 on Housing Matters
