Tenant Information Project (TIP)
Volunteers explain the rights and responsibilities of both the landlord and tenant and the options that the caller may have available. Callers are usually low-income residents of the Clifton area, undergraduate students at UC, or landlords curious about the law. By participating, TIP members gain both practical experience in dealing with clients who have legal problems and specialized knowledge of landlord-tenant law.  A hotline is operated by law students of the University of Cincinnati College of Law:
8am - 5pm, M-F  TIP Hotline: (513) 556-0053 
TIP does not accept questions by email or in person. TIP volunteers are not attorneys, and cannot provide legal advice. They can, however, help clarify the law and explain possible courses of action. Should a person require legal advice or more in-depth assistance, TIP volunteers can direct your call to other agencies and lawyers in Cincinnati.  (Thanks to PatriciaB for sharing)
