    Join us for free pro bono training!  Training will last approximately 2 hours.  

    This session focuses on landlord-tenant law.  The training on Saturday June 2 has an optional expungement law component.  Attorneys interested in expungement training or materials may stay another 30-45 minutes for that component.

    This training is designed as both a refresher for current volunteers and practitioners who have some exposure to landlord-tenant law and those who are new to the area.  Hand-out materials available to take with you.

    Special thanks to Legal Services of Northern Michigan, GTLA, WLA, Equal Justice Works, Cherryland Cares, Rotary Charities of Traverse City, and the Michigan State Bar Foundation for supporting this training.
