Right to Counsel Project

About Us

The Right to Counsel Project provides academic support for advocacy related to implementation of New York City legislation that creates a right to counsel for tenants facing eviction, and provides support for the extension of the right to counsel for tenants nationally. The Project is responsible for the Impact Center’s involvement in the citywide coalition that advocates for the best possible approach to implementation of this right. Additionally, the Project works independently, as well as in consultation and collaboration with academics, legal service providers, community members, and others locally and nationally to research and obtain the most up-to-date data and information to help inform advocacy.
