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. (full year clinic – 3 credits in the fall; 3 credits in the spring)
