Security Deposits * Free Online Training

A landlord’s refusal to return a security deposit can be devastating to a low income client. Often clients are relying on this money to put down as a security deposit for their new apartment or for another emergency.  In this class, you will learn how and why a landlord can keep a security deposit and how a client can take a landlord to Small Claims Court for the return of their deposit.  If you are interested in helping our clients through the Call4Law project and would like to take this informative online class, please contact Don Philips at (860) 344-8096, Ext.

Tenants' Rights * Free Online Training

Many legal aid clients deal with landlord/tenant issues every day.  Some clients don’t think they have any rights, while others believe they have more rights than they actually do.  This class will explain the rights and responsibilities of tenants and their landlords.  If you are interested in helping our clients through the Call4Law project and would like to take this informative online class,  please contact Don Philips at (860) 344-8096, Ext. 3018 or dphilips@slsct.org.

Call4Law Ethics and Resources * Free Online Training

This online class has everything an attorney needs to learn about our Call4Law project and working with legal aid. Call4Law is an exciting project for lawyers who want to do pro bono work for low income people, but don’t believe they have the time. All it takes to volunteer with Call4Law is an hour or two a month! Lawyers agree to make calls to pre-screened clients to analyze their problems and give advice on how the client can handle the problem pro se. Learn about this exiting project by contacting Don Philips at (860) 344-8096, Ext.
