The New Orleans Federal Bar Association (NOFBA) will host a Bankruptcy CLE for non-bankruptcy practitioners tomorrow, September 8, 2022, from 3-5 p.m. at U.S. Bankruptcy Court, 500 Poydras Street in B-709. A wine reception will follow this in-person CLE.

The CLE is designed to provide information about the aspects of bankruptcy law that non-bankruptcy practitioners will most likely encounter in their everyday practice. Topics covered will include the automatic stay: how it works and what constitutes a stay violation; filing proofs of claims and the process of claim objections; how bankruptcy can affect personal injury claims; and more. Please join practitioners Ashley Belleau, David Serio, Coleman Torrans, and Madison Tucker for a discussion of bankruptcy law issues that could affect you or your clients.

This series is in honor of the late Honorable Jerry A. Brown, who served as a bankruptcy judge in the Eastern District of Louisiana for 28 years.  Judge Brown was a steadfast supporter of the New Orleans Chapter of the Federal Bar Association, giving his time both as a member of the Board of Directors, as president of the Chapter from 1980-81, and later as a judge, hosting many sessions of the popular Lunch with the Court program, speaking at various CLE programs, and participating in many of the Chapter’s other functions over the years.
