Who says bankruptcy can’t be festive? OK. Probably there are some who feel that way – but those people haven’t been to the VBA’s Bankruptcy CLE and Luncheon. The popular event is back, live and in-person, on Dec. 2 at the Delta Marriott, 1117 Williston Road, South Burlington. (FKA Trader Dukes). Registration details are on the CLE calendar at the VBA website or click here.
The event was organized by the VBA’s Bankruptcy Law Section, led by Alexandra Edelman of Primmer Piper, Eggleston, & Cramer, and the Hon. Heather Z. Cooper, chief judge of the US Bankruptcy Court for the District of Vermont.
It’s a full-day program that begins with an hour of ethics taught by Bar Counsel Mike Kennedy and continues with the bankruptcy “year in review” led by Brian Ortiz and Jocelyn Koch. Next comes a presentation by Judge Cooper on the state of the bankruptcy court followed by a bench/bar meeting and then lunch. (!) In the afternoon, Ryan Long and Jeff Piampiano will lead an hour on trial preparation and evidence, followed by Michelle Kainen and Paul Levine teaching about preferences in bankruptcy cases. David Dunn and Lisa Penpraze finish the day with a session on the bifurcation of attorney’s fees in bankruptcy.
There are a total of 6.75 general CLE credits, including 1.0 hour of ethics credit available to attendees. This will be a live event only (not recorded) so make your plans to spend Dec. 2 in South Burlington.
