CLLA’s Honorable Frank W. Koger Memorial Education Program: Current Developments in Hot and Emerging Areas of Bankruptcy (3- 5:15 pm)
Restructuring and Bankruptcy Challenges In the 21st Century World of Not for Profits (3-4 pm)

Not for profit organizations often face serious financial difficulties during and after economic downturns. Unlike its commercial counterpart, a non-profit’s mission is often the most important factor in determining what steps it can take to rehabilitate. This panel consisting of highly experienced professionals, will discuss the path a non-profit may take through the restructuring and bankruptcy processes, and the unique issues and challenges, including feasibility, that non-profits face, with a focus on two sectors: health care and religious organizations.

Nice Work If You Can Get It: Getting Employed, Staying Employed, and Getting Paid in Bankruptcy Cases; An Ethics Program (4:15-5:15 pm)

Practicing bankruptcy poses many challenges, including those arising under the Bankruptcy Code and Rules, local rules, common law and rules of professional responsibility. Identifying and avoiding conflicts is difficult. Knowing who your client is and to whom you owe a fiduciary duty is not always clear. Questions include: Does disclosure, alone, cure all? If not, how and can you resolve the problem? Is multiple party representation permitted? And, if allowed, do you still want to go ahead? Competence is more than knowing the law – it is understanding your role and how to practice within “the rules.”
