Students in this program spend approximately six weeks studying the practical side of bankruptcy practice. This involves study of the structure, organization and mission of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court; how to conduct initial conferences; how to prepare the official forms; and how exemptions fit into the bankruptcy picture.

Children and the Law Lab
Students in the Children in the Law Seminar can participate in a lab where they gain hands-on experience serving as Guardians Ad Litem and spokespersons for Court-Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) volunteers on the Coeur d'Alene Reservation. This collaborative effort between the law school, tribal court and the tribe allows these students to gain valuable legal experience and provides a needed service.
