Tenants In Rent Court

The PJC provides a tenant hotline, advice and in-court representation to more than 350 tenants each year in Baltimore City's rent court on eviction and rent-escrow cases. We also provide more than 20 tenant rights trainings to tenant, community and social service organizations each year. We've also released a film: "Stand Up For Your Rights In Baltimore City Rent Court." This film is shown three times per week in Rent Court, with the permission of the judge, and is widely available through partner agencies and the internet.
