Standing up for your tenant rights
There really is no place like home. But what happens when you can’t get the landlord to fix a serious problem in your house? Or the property management company threatens to turn off your utilities? Worse, what do you do when you find an eviction notice on your door? For many people, hiring an attorney to help is out of reach. That’s where the Housing Clinic at Concordia University School of Law comes in.
Legal representation for people in need
Concordia Law’s Housing Clinic is staffed by law students who are participating in a specialized course on tenant rights, laws, and protections. Students are responsible for intake and screening, interviewing and representing clients, as well as handling mediations and hearings in housing court. All student work is completed under the supervision of Concordia Law faculty members.
Service to our community
Concordia’s mission is to prepare leaders for the transformation of society. One of the ways we achieve that is by giving back to the community. Through service, students hone their skills by helping people in need of legal assistance. It’s part of Concordia’s Lutheran heritage, dating back to 1905.

➜ you are facing or have you been threatened with eviction
➜ you are struggling to get the landlord to fix problems in your home
➜ your landlord has turned off or threatened to turn off your utilities
