Program Description

Event Details

Going to court can be an overwhelming experience for both landlords and tenants. This presentation will help build knowledge and confidence by guiding you through the process. In addition, this presentation outlines the various duties and obligations expected of both landlords and tenants and how to seek recourse when these obligations are not met. It will cover how a case gets to court, courtroom etiquette, what happens in the courtroom, and the physical setup of the court.

This program is one of a series we will be offering through a collaboration with Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts (PMC). PMC is a nonpartisan nonprofit committed to ensuring a Pennsylvania judicial system in which everyone who participates is assured impartiality, fairness, accessibility, and respect.  The presenters will be judges and attorneys who volunteer their time for this cause. You may attend in person or via a Zoom link (provided only to registrants), or you may access the presentation afterwards on our website or YouTube channel.



The library makes every effort to ensure our programs can be enjoyed by all. If you have any concerns about accessibility or need to request specific accommodations, please contact the library.
