Pro Bono: Motivations, Challenges, and Solutions
Date: 
08/14/2018 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm
Location: 
Webinar

A new study, "Supporting Justice: A Report on the Pro Bono Work of America's Lawyers," represents the fourth of a series — and first since 2013. The survey reached out to more than 50,000 attorneys in 24 states, seeking data in such areas as their interest, time spent, and key influencing factors related to pro bono work to determine how the culture of volunteering manifests itself in the legal profession. This ABA program will explore the results of that survey, including motivations and challenges involved in providing pro bono legal services.

Eviction Defense: Helping Older Tenants Remain at Home
Date: 
08/14/2018 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm
Location: 
Webinar

From the National Center on Law and Elder Rights

More older adults are choosing to rent, rather than purchase homes. Older tenants are particularly at risk of eviction due to unaffordable rent increases, or retaliation for complaints regarding code violations. Moreover, as adults age, landlords may be reluctant to make reasonable accommodations for tenants with disabilities.  Affordable housing is an important option for older renters, as it may offer reduced barriers and helpful amenities, but older adults may face other challenges preserving their tenancies in such housing.
