Free Advice About Bankruptcy

Georgia State University officials say the school is launching a program to prepare students to provide free bankruptcy counsel in the metro Atlanta area.

University spokeswoman Wendy Cromwell said Tuesday that the school's College of Law will launch the Bankruptcy Assistance and Practice Program this fall.

The program is aimed at offering pro bono bankruptcy assistance to underserved communities and will be run with the help of local attorneys.

Associate professor and co-founder of the program Jessica Gabel says third-year students will enroll in the bankruptcy litigation, negotiation and practice to bolster skills in bankruptcy law and will work under the supervision of mentor-attorneys to offer pro-bono help for academic credit.
