Conversations on Civil Justice | The Civil Justice Crisis in Housing Cases
April 7 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am
An average day in a typical housing court will see about 97% of tenants appearing without a lawyer while an average 81% of landlords have legal representation. What are the implications of this gross inequity for the civil justice system as a whole? How are courts dealing with the crisis? And what steps might be taken to address it?
Please join us for a discussion of the issues with the CJRI’s Richard Jolly (Professor at Southwestern Law); John Pollock, Coordinator of the National Coalition for a Civil Right to Counsel; and Meghan Gordon, Housing Director for the East Bay Community Law Center.
