Business Bankruptcy Committee


Welcome Letter

The Business Bankruptcy Committee is the world's largest organization of bankruptcy restructuring lawyers made up exclusively of bankruptcy attorneys, law professors and judges. The Committee offers cutting edge educational programs on business bankruptcy, useful for the most sophisticated practitioner and the new lawyer, many of which qualify for CLE..

The Committee meets three times a year: in the fall in conjunction with the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges, at the Business Law Section Annual Meeting, and in the spring in conjunction with the Section's Spring Meeting. The Committee operates through approximately 40 subcommittees, as well as a number of task forces, working groups, and special projects. It provides wonderful opportunities for involvement and mentoring by outstanding practitioners around the country.

The Committee also produces webinars on recent developments in the law and topics covered in our programs at no cost to members. The Committee is actively involved in bankruptcy reform, and develops and reviews proposed bankruptcy legislation and rules. As a nongovernmental organization recognized by the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law, the Committee is an important participant in UNCITRAL's Insolvency Working Group.

The Committee publishes a newsletter quarterly and publishes book and model agreements and pleadings for use by members in bankruptcy cases.

We welcome participation, so if you'd like to get involved in the Committee - whether by writing an article for the newsletter, suggesting a topic for a program or webinar, or becoming active in any other way - please get in touch with us.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Susan M. Freeman
