You are invited to the launch of a report detailing an innovative housing law clinic operated from the Focus Ireland service in Temple Bar. The housing law clinic is a partnership between Focus Ireland, A&L Goodbody, and Mercy Law Resource Centre which was supported and facilitated by the Public Interest Law Alliance. It consists of legal advice given at weekly clinics and follow up legal representation.
The lack of legal aid for housing cases in Ireland creates a real obstacle for those experiencing homelessness or housing instability to access legal advice. The housing law clinic constitutes an innovative pro-bono solution which draws on the knowledge and experience of housing and homelessness advocates, housing law experts and solicitors. This report details the history and expansion of the housing law clinic and the impact of the service on those who have accessed it.
