10:55 Welcome and Introductions
11:00 A Pro Bono Practitioner's Guide to Landlord-Tenant Law
James Fulbright, Legal Aid of North Carolina, Raleigh
Jesse H. McCoy II, Duke University School of Law, Durham
In North Carolina, an estimated 485,000 adults in rental housing reported that they are not caught up on rent and nearly three million adults reported difficulty in covering usual household expenses. When existing federal and state eviction moratoriums expire, a massive wave of evictions is expected. During this program, attendees receive a primer on landlord-tenant law, small claims court procedure and the Legal Aid Small Claims Eviction Project with the hope that attendees will assist with advising and/or representing clients facing eviction.
