In the current economic climate an increasing number of low-income Californians are facing eviction.  Unfortunately, many tenants are evicted without the benefit of legal counsel to guide them through the process or the representation necessary to vigorously defend against unlawful actions.  As a result, families face the very real possibility of homelessness.  This training is designed to help mitigate the crisis by providing attorneys with a basic understanding of eviction defense and housing law and an opportunity to connect with non-profit legal service agencies able to facilitate pro bono representation of low income families facing this predicament.
