You are invited to the launch of the report Housing rights and homelessness – Lessons from a pro bono partnership – Impact of the pandemic and beyond.
Created five years ago the innovative housing law clinic has always had the objective to provide free, professional and accessible legal advice and representation to persons and families experiencing the crises of homelessness. In the second report examining the impact of this project we reflect on some of the lessons learnt from this unique partnership between Mercy Law Resource Centre, Focus Ireland and A&L Goodbody LLP (ALG) which was facilitated and supported by the Public Interest Law Alliance, a project of FLAC (the Free Legal Advice Centre) and how the pandemic transformed the delivery of its service.
The report details how the project successfully pivoted online during the pandemic; some of the benefits and also challenges of this; the presenting legal issues and reflections from the project partners and service users of the clinic. The launch will be followed by a panel discussion.
