Tenants Law Association

Mission: The Tenants Law Association (TLA) at UCLA Law School exists to help raise the next generation of lawyers fighting for housing as a human right. In addition to advocating for more courses and educational resources in the law school devoted to housing law from the renter's perspective, we seek to help students create their own path as a tenant lawyer, connect them and the resources of this institution with the vibrant grassroots tenants movement in Los Angeles, and engage in policy advocacy to support radical pro-tenant ideas. We believe that those closest to the problem are closest to the solution, and avoid pushing for market-based policies. We are also explicitly anti-racist, understanding that the housing crisis is rooted in a long history of white supremacy. Join us!
