UPDATE: law school report urges right to counsel for Indiana tenants


A new report from 3 Indiana law schools includes a right to counsel for tenants among its recommendations to curb evictions, noting its success in other jurisdictions as well as the massive disparity in representation between landlords and tenants.




SB 350, introduced in January 2021, requires appointed counsel for tenants in small claims possessory actions in Marion County.
