Tenants’ Rights Workshop

The Tenants’ Rights Workshop helps protect the legal rights and remedies of tenants in Oakland, Berkeley, and Alameda. During weekly clinics, students interview clients and then work one-on-one with staff attorneys from the East Bay Community Law Center (EBCLC) to provide the client with advice and limited legal services. Issues include habitability, foreclosure, subsidized housing, and evictions. Follow-up work often includes students drafting letters to landlords about the tenants’ housing issues. 

Supervision: Students in the Tenants’ Rights Workshop provide legal services under the supervision of attorneys at the East Bay Community Law Center.

Time Commitment: Three hours per week.

For more information, please contact the student leaders at trw@berkeley.edu.
