The EDNY Bankruptcy Court will conduct a workshop for junior lawyers at the Brooklyn Courthouse on November 27, 2018. The workshop will give junior and less experienced lawyers opportunity to gain experience and training in courtroom skills by arguing motions that were filed in chapter 7, 11, and 13 cases. The motions will be argued without opposition. They will be on a teaching calendar called and argued in Court with an EDNY Bankruptcy Judge presiding. Participating lawyers will each be assigned a motion in advance, will argue it and receive feedback from the Bankruptcy judge and experienced bankruptcy lawyers present who are members of the EDNY Chapter 11 Lawyer’s Advisory Committee.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS NOVEMBER 9TH.
