Hear first-hand from the Judge what presentation styles, techniques, and strategies were persuasive and effective. This fast-moving program, geared toward practitioners with knowledge of the basics of landlord-tenant law, focuses on strategies for effectively litigating in the Housing Court. Bring your questions for a highly focused learning experience!
