MCLE is pleased to convene—for the eleventh time—the Housing Court Judicial Forum 2020—back by popular request. With the expansion of the Housing Court throughout the Commonwealth and the advent of e-filing, it is an exciting time of change and growth for the Court as well as the practitioners and litigants who use the services of the Court. Hear participants in the Forum engage in a lively discussion of the real-world impact of the on-going expansion and the use of technology, including the challenges and opportunities involved. Judges from the Eastern, Northeast, Central, Western, Southeast, and Metro South, joined by the Chief Justice of the Housing Court, engage in a frank dialogue with attending practitioners and review key issues confronting Housing Court practice today—including discussion of the efficacy of policies and programs currently in place as well as ideas for providing additional access to justice for all litigants.
Under the guidance of two experienced practitioners, the panel also reviews significant developments in regulatory and case law which may affect your practice in the Housing Court.
This Forum offers you a unique opportunity to gain valuable practical insight into judicial discretion in the Housing Court. Attendees have the opportunity to ask the panel questions and hear directly from the Judges on how to better prepare and try cases. Don’t miss this valuable chance to join in an important dialogue with members of the Housing Court.
