ABI Teleseminar Series to Examine Details of the New Bankruptcy Law

May 17, 2005, Alexandria, Va. The new bankruptcy law makes the most sweeping changes in a generation, affecting both consumer and business bankruptcies. These new changes will be examined in ABI’s seven-part teleseminar series, beginning June 15.  

The first teleseminar on business bankruptcies will be held on June 15 and will feature topics such as the new small business rules, expansion of reclamation claims, broadened preference defenses, trade creditor strategies, new grounds for the appointment of a trustee, single-asset cases and limits on exclusivity. 

The first teleseminar of the consumer bankruptcy series will be held on June 23 and will cover mandatory credit counseling, means testing for chapter 7, other changes in chapter 7 practice, attorney verification and sanctions, the new grounds for dismissal, limits on the automatic stay and new creditor notice requirements.

There are a total of three programs devoted to the details of consumer practice under the new law and three business programs. The final session will be a judges’ roundtable on September 22.
