RRT Eviction Diversion Lab offers briefing from the CFPB

The looming risk of an explosion in eviction filings remains ever present, and state and local courts across the country have begun planning for what happens when their local regulations and/or the CDC moratorium expire.

On Wednesday, April 28, from 3:30-4:15 pm ET, the RRT’s Eviction Diversion Lab invites you to a policy briefing with officials from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). They will offer insights about and answer questions concerning a recent Interim Rule issued in support of the CDC’s eviction moratorium. This Interim Rule requires debt collectors to provide written notice to tenants of their right under the eviction moratorium and provides other protections, as well as penalties for landlords who do not comply. Register for the briefing here.

Over the next few months, NCSC will continue to offer programming and resources to assist state courts with ways to address upcoming eviction cases.  For questions about this briefing or NCSC’s eviction resources, please contact Danielle Hirsch by email or by phone at 303-308-4318.

-Thanks to Susan Bennett for the heads up!

Call-for-Papers: Virtual Poverty Law Workshop, Summer 2021

AALS Virtual Poverty Law Workshop

The AALS Section on Poverty Law is sponsoring a Virtual Poverty Law Workshop this summer. Between our summer and fall series in 2020, the Poverty Law Section workshopped fifteen papers. In light of that experience and the continuing challenges of the pandemic, we are excited to hold another series of summer workshops.

The Virtual Poverty Law Worskhop is intended to be an informal gathering of mainly legal academics to give meaningful feedback to junior faculty and fellows. Each presenter will be paired with a senior commentator. Much like a faculty speaker series, this will allow presenters to get feedback on works-in-progress and the rest of us to connect with others in the Poverty Law community. We will circulate each paper at least a week ahead of time.

We plan to hold the workshops on Tuesdays from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm Eastern on the following dates.

  • May 25th
  • June 1st
  • June 8th
  • June 15th
  • June 22nd
  • June 29th

Call for Papers: Please email us (our emails are below) with your paper proposal by Wednesday, April 28th. If you have a draft of the paper, please include it in your email. Anyone can propose to workshop a paper, but we will give priority to people without tenure and those who have not presented at a AALS Poverty Law Section workshop or panel in the last year. Depending on interest, we will also explore the possibility of Fall workshops and holding a New Voices session at the AALS annual meeting.

Sign up for the Workshops: If you would like to receive the papers and Zoom information, please email

Thank you,
