Colorado Poverty Law Project’s Pro Bono Eviction Program
The Colorado Poverty Law Project (CPLP) has spent the past six months developing an Eviction Pilot Program in partnership with the Denver County Court Self-Help Center. As part of this pilot program, when an indigent individual visits the Center seeking assistance in an eviction proceeding and can articulate a meritorious defense to the eviction, the Center refers the case to CPLP. CPLP then connects the individual with a pro bono attorney to assist. CLCP will conduct a CLE-accredited training session on Thursday, Oct. 15, from 3 to 5 p.m. at Kutak Rock. RSVP to Caitlin Finn if you are interested in attending the CLE or learning more about the Pro Bono Eviction Program.
