Fourth Annual Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal Symposium, 2007

The Annual Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal Symposium benefits from the generous support of Atlanta’s legal community.  In turn, we strive to offer topics at the Symposium that serve the practical needs of local bankruptcy practitioners while furthering the academic reputation of our journal.  The Symposium 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.  The Symposium offers a congenial environment for bankruptcy experts, practitioners, and judges to interact both formally and informally.  Additionally, law students interested in bankruptcy benefit from access to a gathering of great legal minds and bankruptcy leaders.

The Fourth Annual Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal Symposium will be held on March 1, 2007 in Tull Auditorium at Emory University’s School of Law.  The tentative timeline for the Symposium is as follows:
