Event description

Description

Evictions in America have been increasing at alarming rates with millions of families being evicted each year disrupting more than housing, but affecting a families ability to access health care, transportation, education and employment. In 2018, the New York Times published an article detailing the nation’s issues with affordable housing as well as the localities with highest rates of eviction in the country, Richmond is number two.

Each year, the Legal Aid Justice Center receives over 500 requests by low income tenants for legal assistance with housing issues. To help meet the need, the RBA’s Housing Law Program, which has been making a difference in the community since 1990, needs dedicated volunteers to help people stay in their homes.

Join us for the Pro Bono Housing Law Training, co-sponsored by the Richmond Bar Association, Legal Aid Justice Center and Central Virginia Legal Aid Society on Tuesday, December 4, 2018 from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m., at Williams Mullen, 200 South 10th Street, 16th Floor. The training will consist of sessions on landlord/tenant law (evictions, repairs, security deposits), Virginia procedure in housing law, and federally subsidized housing law. It is anticipated that the program will be approved for 3.0 hours of MCLE credit. Pizza, beer and soft drinks will be provided.
