OCU Housing Eviction Legal Assistance Program
Who We Are
A staggering 200 families face eviction in the Oklahoma County every week. Many of these families have little to no knowledge of their rights as tenants and many do not have access to an attorney to help with the issue before reaching Oklahoma County’s Forcible Entry and Detainer docket. Oklahoma City University School of Law has received a generous grant from the Oklahoma Bar Foundation to create the Oklahoma City University School of Law Pro Bono Eviction Assistance Program.
The program is being directed by Richard M. Klinge. Klinge is joyful to have been given the opportunity to work on this project and hopes to fully launch the program mid-March. Klinge has been recruiting OCU Law students who have a community-driven work ethic to be involved in the program. Already, 40 OCU Law students have volunteered their time to help with these families, while furthering their experience with basic legal skills.
