Question: I filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy (large one)..........

Postby barbar » Fri Aug 20, 2010 8:16 pm

I'm afraid that it might be dismissed in an adversary proceeding trial that I recently left. The count would be related to my bankruptcy petition not reporting the correct income etc. It's not a felony or criminal....I don't even know how to describe it other than my bankruptcy is going to be kicked out.

Do I have a chance of getting into law school or the bar? I'm in my mid 30's and it would be a great fit but I don't want to waste time with the LSAT etc if I can't get in.

Thoughts?

You'll want to check with professionals (aka lawyers) rather than 0Ls who can't really speak to your desired state's bar and whose knowledge doesn't tend to extend beyond applications. Most of us have absolutely no experience with your situation and most advice offered here would be guessing, which is not what you need if you're about to risk plopping down $200,000.

Attending law school is a foolproof decision for the financially irresponsible
