“Allegheny County Housing Court: How It Works and How You Can Help”

Allegheny County is experiencing a housing crisis caused by a shortage of quality affordable housing and persistent economic struggles for people at the lowest income levels.  Appeals in eviction cases from magisterial district courts to the Court of Common Pleas are at their highest levels in years.  This panel of experienced practitioners will examine Allegheny County housing cases from the perspectives of the court, volunteer attorneys, and attorneys representing property owners.  Learn how you can play a part in this critical area of need.
