Bankruptcy Court Structure and Insolvency Process Committee


Mission Statement

The mission of the Bankruptcy Court Structure and Insolvency Process Committee is to develop, study, and provide assistance on proposals pertaining to bankruptcy court jurisdiction and proposed rules and legislation affecting the bankruptcy system. The Committee is comprised of lawyers and judges active in bankruptcy or insolvency committees throughout the ABA.


Who We Are

The projects undertaken by the Committee are of immense value to our members and to the insolvency community. Projects include proposed legislation, proposed rule changes, protocol among federal courts and bankruptcy courts and related projects. The size and complexity of these projects allow the opportunity for serious engagement and active involvement of all Committee members, including opportunities for recognition, participation in programs and writing major works.

The Committee’s goal is to involve Members from other Sections and other Business Law Committees in this Committee’s projects. We also maintain a close working relationship with the Business Bankruptcy Committee to ensure that its members, especially young lawyers, can become involved in our projects.

We are open to the ideas of the Business Law Section members to assist us in identifying timely needs in the insolvency community and developing practical solutions.
