Welcome to the Bankruptcy Section of the BBA!

September signals the start of a new year of exciting educational and social programs for the Bankruptcy Section.  We are happy to be continuing the Section’s long-standing commitment to our monthly, thought-provoking “Brown Bag” lunches, dynamic educational seminars, training sessions and other social get-togethers covering timely consumer and business bankruptcy topics as well as strategic practice pointers for all of our members. 

The Bankruptcy Section is a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas, for professional training, for volunteerism and for dialogue among the bankruptcy bar and bench, seeking the improvement of the profession as a whole.  Now comprised of over 500 lawyers, the Bankruptcy Section is made up of 11 separate sub-committees, each lead by volunteer co-chairs representing the diversity of bankruptcy practice in Greater Boston.  In addition, the Section has member-liaisons to work with other sections of the BBA, and has established a Diversity & Inclusion working group to foster membership and inclusion of diverse bankruptcy practitioners. 

The Bankruptcy Section seeks to be a resource for bankruptcy professionals If you’re a member of the BBA and interested in bankruptcy law, you should be a member of the Bankruptcy Section.  Check with the BBA to make sure you’re on the list. Members receive the best information about our services and programs, including our weekly email on Monday mornings.   The Section also maintains a website: http://www.bostonbar.org/sections/bankruptcy-law with information about the Section and its upcoming programs, bankruptcy related news and information about our members and their achievements.  We invite you to consult it often, and to share our news and insights with us.

Our Brown Bag lunches begin on Tuesday, September 11th, and are generally held at the BBA, 16 Beacon Street, Boston, on the second Tuesday of each month, at Noon.   Our Steering Committee meets on the second Friday of each month, at 8:30 a.m.

We particularly wish to invite law students and new lawyers to attend our programs and events. If you would like to participate or learn more about Bankruptcy Section activities, please contact us.

Once again, welcome, and we hope you will become involved with the Bankruptcy Section and the BBA.

Sincerely,

John & Jeanne
