The Effects of the Harlem Housing Court on Tenant Perceptions of Justice

By Rashida Abuwala and Donald J. Farole, Jr.

This study examines the perceptions of self-represented tenants in an innovative housing court at the Harlem Community Justice Center. Harlem tenants viewed the experience in more positive terms than litigants in a conventional court, in large part because they were more likely to perceive the court process and outcome as fair.
