Bar Of San Francisco Schedules Training For Housing Negotiation Project

Monday, August 2, 2010 - 00:00

The Bar Association of San Francisco has scheduled training for the Housing Negotiation Project to teach the basics of representing low-income tenants who are facing eviction.

The session will run from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 21, at the BASF Conference Center, 301 Battery Street in San Francisco.

Volunteer attorneys are needed to staff unlawful detainer settlement conferences and provide limited scope representation to unrepresented litigants during these mandatory settlement conferences. Strategy considerations for the conference as well as tips for drafting a settlement agreement are discussed. This project is a great way for new attorneys to gain courtroom and litigation experience. A commitment to staff at least four courthouse shifts within the next six months is required of those attending the session. Participants will sign up for their first workshop immediately following the training.

To sign up for the training and for more information, email vlsp@sfbar.org or call (415) 782-9000, ext. 8759.
