VOLUNTEERS ARE NOW ELIGIBLE FOR CLE CREDIT!
CBAP’s mission depends on dedicated and generous attorney volunteers. Our volunteers gain valuable
direct client experience and are instrumental in assisting our vulnerable client population. If you accept
a case with CBAP, you are agreeing to pro-bono, full representation of a low-income client for a Chapter
7 Bankruptcy petition. Having access to an attorney such as you means that a family struggling in a
difficult or desperate financial situation has a chance at a fresh start. According to a 2016 Pepperdine
Law Review article a low-income client is 9x more likely to receive a bankruptcy discharge if they are
represented by an attorney. With your help we can do our part to improve the financial situation of a
family in need.
As part of the Pennsylvania Pro Bono Pilot program our volunteers are eligible for up to 3 CLE credits per
compliance period. CBAP also provides training and supervision to all our volunteers as well as access to
bankruptcy software, meeting space, and mal-practice coverage if needed. Please check our events
page for our next scheduled in person training. The CBAP Bankruptcy Resource Manual can also be a
great resource and reference guide.
If you are interested in volunteering to help a member of our community with their bankruptcy filing,
please complete the form below and we will contact you to discuss next steps. There is no obligation as
a result of completing the form. We do not share any of the information you provide to anyone else.
Thank you for your interest and continued support.
