Hear from an LASC Staff Attorney at TAP

“Participating in the Tenant Advocacy Project is incredibly fast-paced and also incredibly rewarding. It’s inspiring to be on the front lines of fighting for social justice in Ohio—seeing firsthand what systemic injustice does to communities and being empowered to push back against those injustices. TAP has absolutely sharpened the skills I developed throughout my academic years and has provided me with substantially more trial and courtroom experience than one would expect to get within their first few years in practice.”

– Thomas Pope, Tenant Advocacy Project Staff Attorney, Legal Aid Society of Columbus
