Fifth Annual Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal Symposium, 2008

The Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal Symposium strives to provide practical and timely topics important to the needs of the local legal and academic communities.  In our efforts to do so, we enjoy generous support from many of Atlanta’s bankruptcy practitioners and financial institutions.

The Symposium's design provides a forum where bankruptcy specialists can challenge current practices, debate best practices, and consider the larger policy implications ever-present in bankruptcy law and its practice.  Additionally, the Symposium allows law students and practitioners to come together in a collegial, learning environment.

The Fifth Annual Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal Symposium will be held on Thursday, March 6, 2008 in Tull Auditorium at Emory University’s School of Law. The tentative schedule for this year’s symposium is as follows:



First Panel




Second Panel




Third Panel




Attendance at the symposium qualifies for CLE credit. We anticipate, as was the case for past symposiums, that attendees will receive 3 CLE credits, including 1 Trial Hour.

The first panel will cover the rise of non-bankruptcy consumer actions and emerging trends in consumer bankruptcy litigation. The second panel will address emerging trends in Chapter 11 litigation and evidentiary issues in bankruptcy. Finally, the third panel will discuss the use of alternative dispute resolution for bankruptcy.

We look forward to your attendance,
