Product Description

Your advice to clients depends upon your knowledge of the basics and new developments, as well as the all-important and ever-present element in any housing law case—judicial discretion. This landlord-tenant law program is a must if you practice, or would like to practice, in this area. Hear the expert panelists explain how to handle the majority of landlord-tenant cases. The basics are covered in a way that attorneys new to the area can easily understand. Much of this practice area can only be learned from the "battlefield"—not from books—because practice and procedure varies from court to court and much of the law is contained in hard-to-find opinions throughout the state. Experienced panelists from across the Commonwealth share their secrets, strategies, and traps for the unwary. You hear valuable insights about the best way to present your clients' claims in court. Do not get caught unprepared!

This fast-moving program explores a range of common residential landlord-tenant issues—and strategic tactics for dealing with them—in a focused, small-classroom setting. Bring your questions to customize the discussion.
