March 9: Webcast - Advocates’ Guide for Protecting Tenants’ Rights: Advanced Unlawful Detainer Defense

Attendees of prior unlawful detainer defense trainings including last year’s California Eviction Defense 2.0 learned the skills necessary to vigorously defend eviction lawsuits. This year’s training builds on those skill sets providing a more in-depth discussion of trial skills and appeals as well as attorneys’ fees. We will also explore strategies for assisting Section 8 tenants struggling to maintain their current housing or find new housing as rents escalate across California.
What You Will Learn

  • Trial skills including evidentiary motions and jury issues
  • Legal tools for preserving Section 8 tenancies in a booming housing market
  • Practical skills and tips for unlawful detainer appeals and writs
  • How to win attorney fees in unlawful detainers

All attorneys or law students interested in or currently assisting low-income clients with eviction matters would benefit from this program. This training is designed for practitioners with some background in unlawful detainer and housing law, so newer attorneys and law students are encouraged to view California Eviction Defense: Protecting Low-Income Tenants 2014 and California Eviction Defense 2.0: Beyond the Basics of Protecting Low-Income Tenants 2015 highlighting unlawful detainer defense basics.
