The Bankruptcy Section promotes networking among members who practice in three U.S. federal districts of the Bankruptcy Courts and provides educational opportunities through an "Annual Bankruptcy Institute" attended by a significant number of members at a resort location in the late fall and one-half day seminar in the spring of each year. The section updates and revises the Bankruptcy Manual as needed.
The section, with currently 702
members, sponsors CLE programs and services; provides members with
a substantive newsletter; and helps mold the association's

The newsletter, Disclosure Statement, offers an index of its
