Students in this clinical seminar will represent homeowners fighting foreclosure in Connecticut state courts. They will conduct motion practice and discovery, including legal research and writing. Although this is primarily a litigation clinic, many of the clients are also participating in court-annexed mediation, in an effort to restructure their mortgages, so students will also gain experience in client counseling and ADR. Students will also provide brief advice and assistance to pro se homeowners at the courthouse.
Instructors: J. L. Pottenger, Jr.
