Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Housing Court Lawyer for the Day Program! Over the past two decades, volunteer lawyers and law students have passed through the Boston Housing Court, offering their assistance to unrepresented tenants and landlords on Eviction Day. Since May 1999, volunteers have helped more than 18,000 individuals. As a volunteer attorney for this program, you will provide access to justice to pro se litigants through advice, mediation, and case litigation. This program is a partnership between the BBA, Volunteer Lawyers Project of the Boston Bar Association, Greater Boston Legal Services, The Legal Services Center of Harvard Law School, Harvard Legal Aid Bureau, and the Boston Housing Court.

We are looking for interested pro bono attorneys to volunteer at our Virtual Housing Clinic to help tenants fight evictions.

How is the clinic different now? Client meetings are now virtual instead of in-person at the crowded courthouse, and we help clients throughout the week instead of on one set day. If our previous Thursday morning clinic did not fit your schedule, this is the perfect time get involved! We can assign you cases that fit within your schedule.

Please complete the brief survey below if you would like to volunteer. A Volunteer Lawyers Project (VLP) staff member will be in contact with you shortly.
