BBA Webinar: Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Basics Training

Thursday, November 19, 2020 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM
On-Line


Description:

During these unprecedented times, your skills as an attorney are needed more than ever.  Although COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on the lives of all, those who live below the poverty level have been hit the hardest. This is particularly true for those who have suffered a loss of income and increased debt.  It is anticipated by experts that the number of bankruptcy filings will substantially increase in the wake of the pandemic, so your volunteerism is especially crucial now.

To help meet this need, the Boston Bar Association (BBA) is offering a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Basics Training for volunteer attorneys.  This training will provide you with the building blocks of Chapter 7 Bankruptcy laws and procedures, and allow you to deepen your skills for your private practice and pro bono cases. Attendees will also learn about the different legal aid organizations that provide pro bono services and are looking for attorney volunteers. Please join us and become part of the response effort to help lessen the financial impact of the pandemic on our most vulnerable community members.  This experienced panel for the training includes a former federal bankruptcy judge.
