Upcoming bankruptcy conferences

There’s still time to register for two conferences geared toward bankruptcy practitioners.

The first, sponsored by the Consumer Bankruptcy Association, offers practical advice on obtaining “Administrative Relief for Student Loan Debtors.”

According to the CBA, “The Department of Education litigates hardship discharges vigorously, and will move to dismiss for failure to exhaust administrative remedies. Find out how to avoid these issues in your cases.”

The featured speaker is Dawn Scaniffe, General Attorney, Office of the General Counsel Department of Education.

The registration deadline is Oct. 1. Details here.

On Nov. 11, the American Bankruptcy Institute, in partnership with the Detroit Consumer Bankruptcy Association, is sponsoring The Sixth Annual Detroit Consumer Bankruptcy Conference.

The conference features an all-star line-up of bankruptcy judges and practitioners.

From the ABI:

This year’s program will again address the topics that consumer practitioners need: the latest from the Supreme Court and the lower courts and what’s left of good faith in bankruptcy, as well as an extensive series of breakout sessions on exemptions, lien -stripping, tax issues, means testing, asset cases, claims against creditors, objections to claims, legal writing and oral argument, and mortgage-modification news.

A special highlight will be our keynote luncheon speaker, former ABI Resident Scholar Prof. Lois Lupica of the University of Maine School of Law, who is investigating fees in consumer cases nationwide.

Registration information here.
