Description:

Interested in bankruptcy law but don’t know where to start?  Join our expert panel to learn the basics of chapter 7.  This program will cover all aspects of representing a consumer debtor in a chapter 7 case: the initial client interview, preparing the petition and schedules, conducting due diligence and avoiding common pitfalls, attending the § 341 meeting, and finally, getting the client their bankruptcy discharge. 

At the conclusion of the training, there will be a reception with experienced attorneys who have volunteered to serve as bankruptcy mentors.  Attendees of this training are asked to sign up to represent a chapter 7 debtor pro bono through the Volunteer Lawyers Project and will be paired with a mentor who will walk you through your first case.  It’s a great opportunity to learn a new area of law, make a meaningful professional connection, and help an indigent debtor get debt relief.
