Bankruptcy Litigation Clinic

Bankruptcy Litigation Clinic 

The Bankruptcy Litigation Clinic involves representing an indigent party in Federal Bankruptcy Court.  Students will handle cases from beginning to end.  The student may draft a complaint, answer, conduct discovery, participate in motion practice, and finally, defend the client at the trial.  Typical cases involve representing either a debtor who has been sued for a denial of discharge, or representing a creditor to have one or more of the creditor's claims declared non-dischargeable.
