The affordable housing and homelessness crises continue in Charlotte, and now more than ever pro bono legal responders are needed to assist clients with urgent housing needs in court.

Join the Charlotte Triage Eviction Project and Legal Aid of North Carolina (LANC) for a CLE training program that will provide an overview of the legal remedies offered to pro bono clients subjected to unfair housing practices, and the two main ways pro bono attorneys can help.  Pro bono attorneys are desperately needed to represent clients facing eviction in the following two ways:

  • Attending a morning clinic in housing court, working alongside LANC attorneys to represent clients in need of day-of representation in court.  This is fast-paced courtroom work that requires you to think on your feet and advocate in small claims court, with immediate results.
  • Representing clients in appeals from Housing Court to District Court.  This is slower paced work that allows for more preparation over the course of several months, culminating in a hearing before a District Court judge.

The training program will prepare volunteer attorneys to handle both of these types of cases, under the mentorship of dedicated LANC attorneys.
