17th Annual Bankruptcy Institute

Join a panel of eight U.S. Bankruptcy Court judges at the 17th Annual Bankruptcy Institute on Thursday, Sept. 20.

The Institute will be joined this year by Eastern District of Pennsylvania Judges Magdeline D. Coleman, Richard E. Fehling, Jean K. FitzSimon and Eric L. Frank; District of Delaware Judge Kevin J. Carey; and District of New Jersey Judges Gloria M. Burns, Rosemary Gambardella and Raymond T. Lyons.

Representatives of the U.S. Trustee's Office, along with Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 Trustees, consumer, commercial and creditor attorneys, and tax experts will also be on hand. A total of 6 CLE credits are available for the program, to be held at The CLE Conference Center on the 10th floor of the Wanamaker Building, Market and Juniper streets, beginning at 9 a.m.

The Institute offers a wide array of topics and individual workshops that will allow you to customize the seminar to your practice, and again this year, we will have a full basic track for newcomers to consumer bankruptcy or for those who just need to brush up on the basics of consumer bankruptcy law.

In addition, consumer and sophisticated commercial tracks will be presented having lots to offer for everyone. The Institute showcases a wide array of topics and individual workshops that will allow registrants to customize the seminar to their practice. An exciting new “Ethics in the Movies” session has been added to the last hour of the Institute this year for a fun and informative way to earn an ethics credit.

The 17th Annual Bankruptcy Institute promises once again, a program full of new and popular sessions and information. Join your colleagues for the bankruptcy event of the year. For more information, visit pbi.org. For a complete list of topics and to register, click here.
