Our legal department provides legal advice and representation in select impact cases, tracks court cases and legislation affecting tenant rights, and weighs in by providing formal comments and amicus briefs in legal and administrative matters of significance to tenants. In addition, we provide training and technical assistance to tenant lawyers and member organizations across the state.
We currently support organizing efforts through tenant rights Clinics in several cities: Richmond, Concord, and San Jose. While receiving legal advice by volunteer attorneys at the clinics, tenants are connected to campaigns and organizers on the ground.
Our Tenant Lawyer Network is a project of Tenants Together. It is the first associaion of its kind in California formed to support the hard work of tenant attorneys and provide continuing education to help tenants get the best representation possible.
