This is a mentoring group for our pro bono bankruptcy attorneys. It is an opportunity for volunteer attorneys to discuss case and practice issues with each other and for newer attorneys to get advice from experienced practitioners.

This is a peer-to-peer forum. VLP Attorney Joanna Allison will facilitate but there is no set agenda or formal training component. You will learn from each other as you discuss issues that come up in your cases or practices. Bring your questions and your knowledge.

This group is for attorneys who have open pro bono cases or who have volunteered at the BMC Debt Collection Lawyer for the Day project recently. Enrollment is limited and will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Please sign up through the link below if you plan to attend.

The group will start promptly at noon. Brown bag lunch optional. BYOL (bring your own lunch).

If you have questions, please contact Attorney Joanna Allison at jallison@vlpnet.org or 617-3423-0648 x143.
