The Legal Assistance Foundation of Metropolitan Chicago is looking for volunteer attorneys that would be interested in serving in a Pro Se Bankruptcy Clinic for low-income clients. If not already familiar with bankruptcy law, volunteers will attend a training session to learn the basics of bankruptcy law from a twenty-year-veteran in bankruptcy.
The volunteers’ responsibilities at the clinic will be discussing individual clients’ bankruptcy cases with them and giving them personalized advice. LAF’s supervisory bankruptcy attorney will be present at the clinic to answer any especially unique or difficult problems. The time commitment would be one-and-a-half hours for the training session, plus around two hours over two weeks for every clinic cycle attended.
The clinic is split into two sessions one week apart, and although it is hoped that many clients will be able to meet with the same attorney during the first and second week, volunteer attorneys are free to attend whichever clinic sessions fit into their schedules, even if that means attending only the first or second session of a clinic cycle.
The first clinic will be held February 24 at 5:00PM and March 3 at 5:00PM at the Jackson location.
If interested in volunteering or desirous of more information, please contact Benjamin Luehrs at (312) 431-2106 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
