More people rent rather than own property in New York City, and renters—also known as tenants—have many rights and protections under federal, state, and local laws. Join students, Professor Andrew Scherer, and current faculty as they lead a panel discussion on how New York City tenants can obtain repairs, understand their leases, sort out roommate issues, and advocate for themselves. Panelists will also discuss the growing need for housing attorneys who work to protect the rights of tenants.
Panelists: Archana Dittakavi, Deputy Director, Tenant Rights Coalition at Manhattan Legal Services; Adjunct Professor of Law, New York Law School Thomas Honan, Supervising Attorney, Tenant Rights Coalition at Manhattan Legal Services; Assistant Professor of Law, New York Law School
Co-sponsor: Wilf Impact Center for Public Interest Law and the Center for Real Estate Studies.
