Bankruptcy Section Pro Bono and Community Service Initiatives
Share |
Adversary Proceeding Project 
Sponsored by the Bankruptcy Section, this new initiative focuses primarily on representing indigent defendants in adversary proceedings.
Credit Abuse and Resistance Education (CARE)
Through this nationwide program supported by the American Bankruptcy Institute, experienced members of the Bankruptcy Section present financial literacy programming to high school students to help them understand the responsible use of credit.  
Georgia State University College of Law Bankruptcy Assistance & Practice Program (BAPP)
BAPP gives Georgia State law students the opportunity to develop practical skills while helping an underserved sector of the greater Atlanta community. This innovative program enables law students to provide pro bono representation in bankruptcy cases to low income debtors with the assistance of volunteer mentor attorneys.
Low Income Creditor Assistance Project
This initiative was founded in 2013 by the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation (AVLF) and the Bankruptcy Section.  The goal of LICAP is to provide low income judgment creditors with free legal assistance in bankruptcy cases.  These creditors are AVLF clients who are pursuing or have recently obtained judgments against employers or landlords through other AVLF programs.
The Reaffirmation Project
This initiative was developed in 2007 by the Bankruptcy Section in collaboration with the Atlanta Legal Aid Society, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Georgia, the Clerk’s Office for the Bankruptcy Court, and the Office of the United States Trustee for Region 21.  The Reaffirmation Project provides free legal counsel to unrepresented debtors seeking to enter into reaffirmation agreements in bankruptcy cases.
