The Consumer Bankruptcy Clinic involves the filing of a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy petition on behalf of an individual or a married couple. You will participate in the intake and retention of the client or clients. You will meet directly with clients and obtain the necessary information to properly prepare a bankruptcy case. You will learn to analyze the financial situation of the debtor, prepare the bankruptcy petitiion, schedules and statement of financial affairs and file them with the court. If the case is a Chapter 13, you will also prepare a Chapter 13 plan under which the debtor will repay all or some of his or her debt. You will appear on behalf of the debtors at the meeting of creditors, and monitor the case through the clients receiving their discharge. This will include responding to any requests from the trustee. In addition to gaining valuable experience in (1) consumer bankruptcy and (2) dealing directly with clients, you will be providing a valuable service to those who are less fortunate than most.
