5-Day Bankruptcy Training and Certificate Summer Program for incoming 2Ls and 3Ls.

August 22, 2022 @ 10:00 am August 26, 2022 @ 4:00 pm Chicago Time Zone

National Bankruptcy Academy offers its bankruptcy certificate summer program for 2Ls and 3Ls to build job-getting skills that increase the law students’ prospects of landing a solid job offer after law school. 

Develop specific skills. Employers seek candidates who can “hit the ground running” and increase law firm profitability with the minimum of lost billable hours needed  for training. Law students can gain those specific skills by taking this 5-day bankruptcy training summer program. 2Ls and 3Ls will learn specific, concrete, real-world skills.  

Display identifiable skills. What better way to demonstrate marketable skills to prospective employers than earning a certificate from a national organization? The National Bankruptcy Academy offers its proprietary certificate in bankruptcy. Program participants will be given the opportunity to sit for the National Bankruptcy Academy 250-question online exam that requires 80% correct answers to earn the “Bankruptcy Scholar” certificate. This certificate looks great on a resume and can help law students land a solid job offer after law school.
