Need Anticipated for Pro Bono Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Attorneys

During these challenging economic times, it is anticipated that there will be an increased need for pro bono Chapter 7 Bankruptcy attorneys. As protections for vulnerable groups expire, more volunteer attorneys will be sought to assist those facing Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

To this end, the BBA has hosted two virtual training programs to educate interested volunteers on the basics of Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Each training provided attendees with the building blocks of Chapter 7 Bankruptcy laws and procedures. The first training was held in July of 2020, and the recording for this program can be accessed here. The second training took place in November of 2020, and the recording of this training can be accessed here. Both programs covered identical materials, though the November training was geared more towards western Massachusetts.

If you have any questions about either program, please contact Doug Newton at dnewton@bostonbar.org.
