Update on ABI Consumer Bankruptcy Commission

posted by Bob Lawless

This afternoon, I am off to New Orleans and the annual meeting for the National Association of Bankruptcy Trustees (NABT).  Tomorrow (September 15) from 12:30 - 2:30 PM, we are holding a public meeting for the Committee on Chapter 7 of the American Bankruptcy Institute's Commission on Consumer Bankruptcy. If you are at the NABT meeting, come and listen to our full schedule of fourteen speakers. The room location should be in the program and will be in the public meeting space for the conference.

If you would like to speak to us, there will be another opportunity for persons attending the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges (NCBJ) in Las Vegas. The Committee on Case Administration & the Estate will be holding a public meeting at NCBJ on the morning of October 10. More information about requesting a time to speak is available at the call for participation. There also will be public meetings for the full Commission at the ABI's Wedoff Consumer Bankruptcy Conference to be held in November in Chicago, Illinois, and the Winter Leadership Conference to be held in December in Palm Springs, California.

Of course, you don't have to come to a meeting to send us your suggestions and comments. Anyone can send an email to ConsumerCommission@abiworld.og. I route all of those emails directly to the persons working on the issues raised as well as make them available to everyone involved with the Commission. Now is a particularly good time to write us as the committees are working on preliminary drafts. The topics the Commission is addressing are also available on our web site.

Bankr-L

  • As a public service, the University of Illinois College of Law operates Bankr-L, an e-mail list on which bankruptcy professionals can exchange information. Bankr-L is administered by one of the Credit Slips bloggers, Professor Robert M. Lawless of the University of Illinois. Although Bankr-L is a free service, membership is limited only to persons with a professional connection to the bankruptcy field (e.g., lawyer, accountant, academic, judge). To request a subscription on Bankr-L, click here to visit the page for the list and then click on the link for "Subscribe." After completing the information there, please also send an e-mail to Professor Lawless (rlawless@illinois.edu) with a short description of your professional connection to bankruptcy. A link to a URL with a professional bio or other identifying information would be great.
