This training will focus on the recent increase in debt collection cases related to rent arrears. The goals of the training are 1) to give housing attorneys familiarity with consumer debt law in order to fully understand and minimize consumer consequences for tenants unable to pay rent arrears post-judgment or who move out before a lease ends; and 2) to give consumer attorneys a greater understanding of housing law in order to better defend collection actions. The training will consist of an overview of relevant housing and consumer law; litigation strategies; and the attorney’s ethical obligation to provide the client with the information needed to make an informed decision when a housing court judgment could result in a debt collection action.

In order to register for the upcoming CLARO trainings you will need an account on the Legal Services NYC Learning Center website.
