DePaul University College of Law Croak Community Legal Clinic presents a THREE-Part Webinar Series: Evictions & Unemployment: Know Your Rights During COVID-19  

COVID-19 has caused major disruptions to the economy, leading to staggering unemployment rates and exacerbating the affordable housing crisis.  The laws regarding evictions and unemployment benefits are evolving in response to this crisis.  

Law students from DePaul University will help you understand the impact of these changes on tenants, landlords, and workers seeking unemployment benefits.  

You will be able to set up a free, one-on-one consultation following each presentation if you need further legal advice.  

We will present these webinars on Zoom.  If you do not have reliable internet access, there will be a call-in option.  

We’ll also be on Facebook Live!
