Bankruptcy Client Representation Project
The Bankruptcy Client Representation Project offers students an opportunity to represent a low-income client in a consumer Chapter 7 bankruptcy case.
This includes client intake and interviewing, preparation of a bankruptcy petition, assistance with credit counseling and attending the
341 creditor/trustee meeting.
We call it a "project" rather than a clinic because its scope is limited to two credits and students work in teams under the supervision
of pro bono attorneys. As with a traditional clinic, students attend classroom sessions designed to provide the knowledge, skills, and perspective
needed in order to represent their clients effectively.
