Writing Effective Settlements [00:59:15]

How an unlawful detainer case resolves may have a lasting impact on a low-income tenant’s future ability to find housing.  What key language should be included in settlement agreements?  What are the options for the form of a settlement agreement?  When should tenants elect to go to jury trial?  This panel will address these and other considerations in bringing the unlawful detainer case to resolution.
