The volunteer provides income eligible landlords and tenants with free legal assistance in Housing Court every Thursday, which is Summary Process/Eviction day. The Housing Court Lawyer for the Day may be called upon to file a court appearance, on the day they volunteer only, in order to represent the client in their eviction case. The volunteers may also advocate for their clients through mediation with a court specialist.
