Mercy Law Resource Centre (MLRC) has said it sees an increasing need for accurate and accessible legal advice, information and representation for those in or facing housing crisis, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The housing charity has received many queries related to emergency legislation introduced in response to COVID-19.
As a result, MLRC is providing training on the Emergency Measures in the Public Interest (Covid-19) Act 2020 to staff and volunteers of organisations working in the field of housing and homelessness.
The organisation is holding a recorded webinar entitled ‘The legal implications for housing and homelessness of the Emergency Measures in the Public Interest (Covid-19) Act 2020’ next Thursday, 11 June, at noon.
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
The speakers include:
- Nóra Ní Lionsigh BL,
- Rebecca Keatinge, managing solicitor, MLRC,
- Paul Dornan, solicitor, MLRC,
- Sinead McGarrigle, solicitor, MLRC.
The webinar will be free to attend but donations for MLRC work are most welcome.
