New public legal education course on Housing rights for refugees

Law for Life is running an online public legal education course on Housing rights for refugees. The course is funded by the Matrix Causes.

The course will consist of three weekly videos and webinars on different aspects of housing law. The videos are in a Q&A format with a housing/welfare legal specialist. They are accompanied by weekly Zoom webinars. The webinars will focus on practice exercises, skills and confidence building. You will also be able to ask our brilliant lawyers, who are working with us on this course, any specific questions.

The course is for grassroots and community groups from the north of England who support refugees in securing housing and refugees themselves. The course provides basic legal knowledge and is suitable for people with no prior training on housing law.

Due to high demand, we would like to ask you to delegate one person per organisation.


The course will run for three weeks every Wednesday morning 10-12am on Zoom:

  • 2nd December 2020 – Benefits and housing
  • 9th December 2020 – Private renting: Dealing with disrepair and poor-quality housing
  • 16th December – Private renting: Dealing with section 21 evictions


The course is free of charge, but participants are expected to attend all the sessions. Please register by 25th November 2020.

The course will be delivered in English.
