Housing Eviction Legal Assistance Program (HELP)

Funded by the Oklahoma Bar Foundation, OCU Law HELP provides pro bono legal assistance for all tenants in Oklahoma County facing lease disputes or eviction (also known as Forcible Entry & Detainer) by informing them of their procedural and substantive rights. Two licensed attorneys supervise OCU Law students recruited to help these families while gaining experience with basic legal skills. Our clinic can give legal advice to any tenant in Oklahoma. Still, we can only represent tenants in court for evictions in Oklahoma County

A staggering 200 families face eviction in Oklahoma County every week. Many of these families have limited knowledge of their rights as tenants and many do not have access to an attorney before reaching Oklahoma County’s Forcible Entry and Detainer docket. OCU Law has received a generous grant from the Oklahoma Bar Foundation to create HELP.

HELP was created to provide pro bono legal assistance to those facing either lease disputes with a landlord or eviction by informing them about their procedural and substantive rights, and we hope, detouring them from facing the consequences of eviction.

As rent throughout the country continues to rise, so will the number of families needing this assistance. HELP’s goal is to alleviate some of the stress families face in troubled times.
