A greater numbers of attorneys are finding the need to learn or to re-learn how to service bankruptcy law clients while not violating the regulations on lawyering of the Bankruptcy “Reform” Act, which became effective October 2005. In this practice-oriented program, the faculty will examine the “nuts and bolts” of bankruptcy law and practice. They will discuss substantive issues such as property of the estate, discharge and dischargeability of debts, the automatic stay, executory contracts and leases, and voidable transfers of property that most commonly arise in bankruptcy cases. They will address Chapter 7 and Chapter 13, the means test, and consumer oriented issues that face lawyers. You will learn how to commence a case as well as the ethical obligations of counsel in the bankruptcy context. There will be panel discussion as to procedures, rules and customs of local interest and audience questions will be encouraged.
