Bankruptcy 101 Series - Session 7 - What is Really Going on Behind the Curtain?


Bankruptcy 101 Series - Session 7

Do I really need a program to learn how to practice bankruptcy law?

I thought it was just filling out a bunch of forms!

Presented by Andrea Wimmer

What is Really Going on Behind the Curtain?

Andrea surveyed the Bankruptcy Court staff to find out more about how we, as lawyers, can make everyone’s life easier. She will discuss best practices, free resources, and provide some practical tips on dealing with court staff. Andrea will also talk about resources available to ensure you meet best practices when it comes to bankruptcy appeals and conclude with an overview of the volunteer opportunities available for bankruptcy lawyers.


This will be an exciting program with lots of practical information to help both the new and experienced consumer practitioners.
