Bankruptcy Law Section

The Bankruptcy Law Section of The Virginia Bar Association was established in 1989. The Section holds its annual conference each spring in such locations as Duck, North Carolina, offering section members CLE credits as well as networking opportunities with other bankruptcy law practitioners. The Section also reviews, comments upon and, in appropriate circumstances, participates directly in the legislative and regulatory process on matters of professional interest to our members. Each year, the Section distributes a legislative summary to the membership immediately after the session of the Virginia General Assembly.

The spring 2013 conference was the Section's 16th annual event. The weekend program included

  • Recent Developments in Bankruptcy Law
  • Issues in Individual Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Cases
  • Bankruptcy Ethics
  • Important Code and Rule Provisions in Consumer Cases

At a recent conference, one of the four CLE sessions involved a discussion by Chris Jones of
Whiteford, Taylor & Preston, LLP, in Falls Church; Robbie Westerman
of Hirschler Fleischer PC in Richmond; and U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Bill Stone
on “To Be or Not To Be Employed by a Debtor in Bankruptcy—
A Consideration of Ethical Issues.”
