Housing Negotiation Project – The Basics of Unlawful Detainer Law
The Housing Negotiation Project (HNP) is JDC’s limited-scope project for Eviction Defense. Through this project, volunteer attorneys represent low-income individuals and families being evicted during their mandatory settlement conferences. Representation is limited to settlement conferences only. Through this unique project, every individual in need of an attorney receives representation. Volunteer shifts are Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 12:30 – 4:30 p.m. During one shift, a volunteer will represent one to three clients. It is an excellent opportunity to get valuable negotiation experience without a large time commitment. Volunteers must attend our free CLE training before volunteering for this project. After attending the training, we ask our volunteers commit to four afternoon sessions within six months.
