RCBA New Lawyers Pro Bono Eviction Expungement Clinic

Event Description

Registration for this event is closed.

This program is hosted by the RCBA New Lawyers Section in conjunction with Southern Minneosta Regional Legal Services (SMRLS).

Join the RCBA New Lawyers for their annual volunteer event in March.  This year we are switching to a volunteer event more related to the legal community, providing pro bono legal advice to low income clients seeking eviction expungements. The COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing economic crisis have impacted low income Minnesotans in large numbers. Helping someone expunge an eviction from their records can make a big difference in their life, helping them find safe and affordable housing.

 

Attend the TRAINING on March 11th at 5pm to learn the basics of eviction expungements, so you are ready to provide advice to clients the following week at the clinic. REGISTER HERE. You must attend the TRAINING on March 11 to participate in the clinic.

Attend the CLINIC on March 18th at 1pm to assist individuals with their eviction expungement case preparation, including preparing the petition, and discussing the process. Please hit the REGISTER button above to sign up. Please register for both events.

 

Clients will represent themselves in court.
SMRLS will provide the training on March 11th and SMRLS will recruit clients for the March 18th Clinic. 

CLE Credits:  
A Lawyer may claim 1 hour of standard CLE credit for every 6 hours of pro bono legal representation that the lawyer provides. Contact the program you volunteer through, or the CLE Board for details.
