LEGAL AID CLINIC FOR BANKRUTCY AND EXECUTION OF JUDGMENT
Execution of Judgment relates to all areas of law because every judgment must be executed…
Execution of Judgments is a daily legal practice through which a lawyer encounters fascinating human stories.
As a means for rehabilitating private debtors, bankruptcy has gained momentum in recent years, especially in light of Amendment 29 of the Execution of Judgment Law which instructs the Execution Office Registrar to refer all suitable debt cases to bankruptcy proceedings. Familiarity with this process will be an asset to any beginning lawyer.
For clients of the clinic, the difference between managing these procedures with legal assistance and managing them alone is the difference between an successful outcome and release from economic entanglement, and continued entanglement that leads down a dead end street.
The Execution and Bankruptcy Clinic will introduce participating students to the work methods used in these fields, including investigation of ability, case consolidation, declaration of a debtor with limited resources, filing objections to a writ of execution, objection to an allocated amount, claim of payment made, preparing affidavits of economic entanglement and filing a bankruptcy declaration in district court and much more.
The clinic has two purposes. On the one hand, it aids clients who are facing financial difficulties and cannot afford lawyer to guide through the maze of Execution and Bankruptcy proceedings, and develops students’ social sensitivity to the distress and barriers faced by this population.On the other hand, students learn about the practical world of execution and bankrupcy, and receive practical training in the field.
Our goal for the semester is for students to acquire not only a broad acquaintance with the world of execution and bankruptcy, but also a socially sensitive and critical view of the law in this field.
- Commitment to the clinic, initiative, creativity, confidentiality
- Participation in all classes sessions and be present for assigned work hours at the clinic.
- At the end of the clinic, oral and written presentations about a selected case.
