HYBRID EVENT. PARTICIPANTS MAY CHOOSE TO ATTEND IN PERSON OR VIA ZOOM. All attendees must register in advance. All registrants will receive a Zoom link. If attending in person, please come to VLN’s offices, located at 600 Nicollet Mall, Suite 390A, Minneapolis, MN 55402.

Description of the training:
All protections from the moratorium phase-out sunset on June 1, 2022. As was expected, the courts have been dealing with a surge of eviction cases since that time. Please join us in hearing what it is like to deal with the surge from court staff, lawyers representing tenants and lawyers representing landlords. This panel discussion is for lawyer and non-lawyers, current and prospective volunteers. Lawyers can expect to leave this training with a greater understanding of the importance of their pro bono service in housing court and some nuts and bolts about how to best advise low-income parties during this surge period.

Confirmed speakers so far include:
– Adam Silver, Court Operations Supervisor, Housing Division, 4th Judicial District
– Representative from Ramsey County Housing Court
– Robin Ann Williams, landlord attorney
Moderated by Muria Kruger, Housing Program Manager at Volunteer Lawyers Network

This CLE will be followed by a happy hour at Brit’s Pub in downtown Minneapolis. No registration required for the happy hour!
