2017 Bankruptcy CLE

On February 23, 2017, the Oregon Chapter held a CLE at the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Oregon. Ann Chapman of Vanden Bos & Chapman LLP and U.S. Bankruptcy Judge David Hercher gave a presentation titled “Filling in the Gaps: Moving Beyond ‘Dangerous’ in Your Knowledge of Bankruptcy Law.” The CLE provided essential nuts and bolts about bankruptcy law and procedure to help non-bankruptcy lawyers better assist their clients when those issues arise. Among the topics addressed were tips for attorneys to ensure they are able to collect for their services when working with clients that may go into bankruptcy. The Oregon Chapter is working to reach out to attorneys who typically do not interact with the FBA. This event attracted domestic relations attorneys, probate attorneys, and general practice attorneys who work predominantly in state court. Following the CLE, the FBA hosted a networking social that was attended by the CLE participants, as well as several of the bankruptcy judges and their staff.
