Building Legal Capability: Section 21 Eviction Notices Training

As part of our TDS Charitable Foundation funded project focusing on private renting, Law for Life organised a full day’s training for private renters, and organisations who support private renters such as tenants’ rights associations and small/medium size charities. The training took place in London in early November.

Fifteen participants from ten different organisations attended. Lucy Grey, a senior associate from Allen & Overy was a guest speaker on the day. She was able to answer some specific legal questions, facilitate a lively debate, contribute to our case study discussions and offer reliable information and guidance. This greatly enhanced the training delivery.

“I really enjoyed being part of the Law for Life training, which was skilfully facilitated by Dada and Tony. It was stimulating to be part of a group discussing tenancy issues from a different angle to my usual commercial work. Allen & Overy is always interested in being part of legal innovations, so it was great to see Law for Life’s public legal education model in action.” - Lucy Grey, a senior associate Allen & Overy

The feedback was very positive and 93% of participants rated our training excellent or very good.

“The discussions/workshop approach helped me to not only understand the Section 21 evictions but also the awareness for help and support.” - Training participant

This training will be repeated in Birmingham in early 2017.
As part of this project we also put together information, including two new guides, for private renters on our website.
