This course, presented by experienced practitioner Peggy Collen, will introduce practitioners who represent tenants in New York City to a procedural attack on the landlord’s case.

  2. Examine relevant statutes and case law
  3. Develop a checklist for discovering procedural defects
  4. Discuss strategies for attacking the landlord’s case, beginning with the answer
