Law students will staff the Mobile Home Park Help Line, providing information to residents and owners of Mobile Home Parks about their rights and responsibilities under the Mobile Home Park Residency Act.
The helpline number is 801-587-6700.
Since mobile homes are so expensive to move, it is crucial that disputes within the park be resolved and evictions (and loss of major investments) be avoided.
A small team of students will work with supervising attorneys Jonny Benson (JD 2006) and Jessica Samowitz (JD 2012) and Clinical Program Director Linda Smith. The Helpline will be administered using a cloud-based customer relations management (CRM) software, and will provide students with hands on experience with the intersection of technology and the practice of law.
A kick-off lunch for this project will be held Friday August 28 at 12:15 in Room 3609. Come meet our supervising attorneys and learn about this project. Applications are still open for this team.
This project is funded in part by a grant from the Utah State Legislature.
