In February 2022, the American Bar Association passed a resolution laying out the ABA 10 Guidelines for Residential Eviction Laws. These 10 points set up standards for due process, and ways to ensure that tenants facing eviction have the full protection of the law.
You can see the full resolution, including a report with more details and supporting references at the ABA’s site (pdf at link).
Local eviction-focused coalitions can use this ABA 10 Point list to explore reforms with courts, lawyers groups, and other associations and nonprofits in the community. These points lay out the key steps to understand how your local legal system is performing when it comes to eviction prevention, and what you should be asking leaders to work on.
