Minneapolis and St. Paul Bankruptcy Advice Clinics

The Bankruptcy Advice Clinic is a collaborative effort of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Minnesota, the Bankruptcy Section of the Minnesota State Bar Association and the Volunteer Lawyers Network. The Clinic is a free service under which low income Minnesota residents contemplating bankruptcy, as well as pro se debtors and creditors already involved in pending bankruptcy cases and adversary proceedings, can receive up to 15 minutes of basic information and bankruptcy-related advice from members of the bar. Attorneys who volunteer to participate in the Project are not undertaking to represent any individual beyond the brief advice given at the clinic.

The clinics are available on a bi-weekly basis in Minneapolis and St. Paul and are staffed with volunteer bankruptcy attorneys and law students. The eight fifteen-minute time slots available each week are allotted on a first come, first served basis only; no pre-scheduling is available. Upcoming clinic dates are listed below.
