The University of Nebraska College of Law is committed to its faculty and staff supporting their students by providing experiential learning opportunities and a classroom curriculum that prepares them to lead their communities and serve with integrity. The University of Nebraska College of Law has launched a Housing Justice Program. The program is a collaborative legal effort intended to expand on and supplement the work of the successful Tenant Assistance Project. University of Nebraska Law partners with other legal service providers and nonprofit organizations; the program aims to prevent homelessness while providing access to resources and services. The program includes the eviction prevention work of the Tenant Assistance Project, Housing Justice Clinic, Housing Justice Fellowship Program, resource navigation, and continuing non-legal support for struggling families. The Housing Justice Program anticipates having 30 to 40 student participants each semester through pro bono opportunities or enrollment in the Housing Justice Clinic.
