Foreclosure Prevention Program
Common Law provides legal education and legal services to homeowners facing foreclosure at weekly legal clinics. Our legal clinics teach homeowners about their rights and options, respond to their immediate need for legal assistance, and connect homeowners to community organizing efforts.
Our legal clinics take place every Tuesday, from 6:30pm – 8:30pm, at NESRI (90 John Street, Suite 308, in Manhattan). To attend the legal clinic, please call our office to schedule an appointment: 212-213-3920.
Common Law provides legal representation to tenants in Chinatown, Manhattan organizing against gentrification. In addition to legal representation, Common Law provides monthly legal clinics that focus on legal education and community organizing.
Organizing for Occupation
Common Law, working in partnership with several community organizers, initiated Organizing for Occupation (O4O) in early 2011. O4O is a group of New York City activists from diverse backgrounds that have come together to fight for the human right to housing through direct action. Common Law provides ongoing legal and community support for O4O.
