Eviction Defense Clinic

This is a five-unit clinical course in which law students represent low-income tenants being evicted or at risk of being evicted from their homes. In general, students will attend a classroom component and engage in legal work under the supervision of ICLC Professors and Inner City Law Center (ICLC) attorneys experienced in eviction defense litigation and trial. Clients reside in Los Angeles County and most trials take place at the Pasadena, Norwalk and Stanley Mosk Courthouses. Skills emphasized in the course include client interviewing, client counseling, development of case theory, file management, negotiation, written and oral advocacy, and litigation including responsive pleadings, law and motion, discovery, and trial. More information about ICLC can be found at ICLC's website: innercitylawcenter.org.
