Emory Law Student Honored by American College of Bankruptcy

Third-year law student Stacia M. Stokes has been named a 2011 Distinguished Law Student for the 11th Circuit by the American College of Bankruptcy.

Stokes will receive an all-expense paid trip to the college’s annual induction ceremony and events in Washington, D.C., on March 18-19. The induction ceremony will take place at the U.S. Supreme Court in the Great Hall.

Stokes serves as executive notes and comments editor of Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal and is Emory Law’s 2010-2011 Southeastern Bankruptcy Law Institute Scholar. During law school, she worked with Judges Paul W. Bonapfel and Mary Grace Diehl, both of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Georgia.

Following graduation, Stokes will clerk for Judge Wendy L. Hagenau, also of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Georgia.

The American College of Bankruptcy is an honorary professional and educational association of bankruptcy and insolvency professionals. Distinguished Law Students are selected each year through a rigorous nomination process. Students must be recommended by either a College Fellow or their professors. Each nominated student must have outstanding academic credentials and an interest in bankruptcy law. Only one student is selected from each circuit.

Gary Marsh 85L, partner at McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP and adjunct professor at Emory Law, participated in the Distinguished Bankruptcy Law Students Program Committee that selected the recipients.
