Thomas Gugliotti | Enhancing Pro Bono Representation in Consumer Bankruptcy Cases

The article is about the new Connecticut Bar Association Commercial Law & Bankruptcy Section pro bono bankruptcy program. This pro bono program has two primary objectives: (1) to create an organized means to recruit and maintain a list of volunteer attorneys who are willing to take on representation of individuals in Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceedings; (2) to create a portal through which prospective qualified individuals can seek the assistance of pro bono bankruptcy counsel.
