A recent study by the District of Columbia Superior Court reported that 95 percent of tenants in Landlord-Tenant court are unrepresented. Most cannot afford representation, making the need for volunteer legal assistance all the more pressing. The Housing Practice Area provides resources and support for pro bono attorneys, legal services attorneys and law students in advising and representing District of Columbia residents with housing problems, including landlord-tenant, subsidized housing, and homelessness issues.
