About the Project

Volunteer Opportunities | Law Student Assistance

This website was established as part of the Bankruptcy Section’s efforts to improve the delivery of legal services to the disadvantaged. It is our hope that this site will provide valuable information and assistance to attorneys doing pro bono bankruptcy work.

The American College of Bankruptcy provided a grant to help fund this project. The grant also makes funds available to reimburse volunteer attorneys for certain expenses incurred in taking on pro bono bankruptcy matters. See the Expense Reimbursement form for details and to apply.

Please contact us with your suggestions for improving this site or with content you wish to submit for posting on this site.
