The bankruptcy litigation clinic will defend debtors who are being sued for a denial of discharge, or in a case instigated by a creditor who is seeking to have a claim or claims declared nondischargeable. Students will be involved for two semesters, allowing more extensive involvement with ongoing litigation. This clinic complements the work of the existing bankruptcy law clinic, which has been renamed to the consumer bankruptcy clinic.
The nonprofit organizations clinic will focus on the legal needs of new nonprofits that are being created by law students. It will help these nascent organizations get off the ground, provide a vehicle for student involvement in social and economic justice issues and help students acquire important knowledge, skills and values.
