CA Bankruptcy Lawyers: Get Ready for the Dec. 1 Rules Changes

California bankruptcy practitioners, experienced and new: you know that keeping up with the changes to the bankruptcy code and case law is no simple task. Luckily, one of the most popular publishers of California legal practice guides and reference materials, The Rutter Group, is offering an evening seminar in both Northern and Southern California to get you up-to-date: Recent Developments and Hot Topics in Bankruptcy. (Disclosure: The Rutter Group is FindLaw's sister company.)

The seminar will not only walk you through the big changes coming to the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure and Forms on December 1, 2017, but it will also review the recent Ninth Circuit and Supreme Court decisions that impact California bankruptcies. This is a "do-not-miss" event for bankruptcy practitioners in the state as each program will have local federal bankruptcy judges as panelists providing critical practice pointers.

The Essentials

Whether you do consumer or business bankruptcies, or both, the seminar will teach you the essential tools for successfully handling your cases in the changing landscape. The course will review the new amendments to chapter 11 and 13 plans, as well as the proof of claims process, 363 sales, and even the ethical duties surrounding representation and getting paid.

In addition to these changes, the seminar will teach practitioners about the significance of the following recent big decisions: Wellness International (which updates Stern v. Marshall), Law v. Siegel, and Husky International v. Ritz.

What You Need to Know to Sign Up

The Rutter Group's seminar, Recent Developments and Hot Topics in Bankruptcy, will be held live in San Francisco on October 17 and in Los Angeles on October 26. The evening program begins at 5:30 p.m. with registration, and starts at 6:00 p.m. (ending around 9:15 p.m.). The San Francisco seminar's panelists will be Judge Charles Novack of the Northern District Bankruptcy Court, as well as that court's chief judge, Roger Efremsky. The Los Angeles seminar's panelists will be Central District Bankruptcy Court judges Martin Barash and Neil Bason.

The cost to attend is $160, and if what you will learn and the 3 MCLE credits (0.5 in ethics) aren't enough value for your money, there's an added perk for taking the course. Attendees are entitled to steep, 50% discounts on three of The Rutter Group's related practice guides: The Rutter Group California Practice Guide: Bankruptcy, The Rutter Group California Practice Guide: Enforcing Judgments and Debts, and The Rutter Group California Practice Guide: Landlord-Tenant.
