Legal Services Trainings
The American College of Bankruptcy Foundation awarded grant funds to produce a series of educational videos to help improve the quality of basic bankruptcy representation in Arizona, and to encourage pro bono legal work. The Bankruptcy 101 educational videos have been provided to you as gift.
We ask that Arizona lawyers repay this gift by donating pro bono time to one of the following organizations: The United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Arizona Self Help Center, The Volunteer Lawyers Programs of Arizona, The Arizona Foundation for Legal Services & Education, or The Modest Means Program.
IMPORTANT WARNING: These videos are not intended to give you legal advice, and they are not a substitute for legal advice specific to your situation that you should obtain from a qualified attorney. Go to the State Bar of Arizona website at www.azbar.org to find a bankruptcy attorney.
Under a grant provided by the Department of Economic Security's Community Services Administration, the Foundation provides 3 regional trainings and 1 statewide training per grant year (July 1 - June30). These trainings are for CSA and DOJ grantees of the Foundation who provide legal help to domestic violence victims. For more information on the Arizona Domestic Violence Legal Assistance Project.
The Foundation provides a statewide training to all of its grantees every other year. The training covers a variety of topics from Burnout to Family Law to Best Computer Practices.
