Bankruptcy Brown Bag Luncheons Educate Attorneys
On Thursday, Sept. 16, at the Missouri Bar Headquarters Conference Room in Jefferson City, U.S. Chief Bankruptcy Judge Dennis R. Dow and Adam Miller from the U.S. Trustee's Office, along with courthouse staff, spoke with attorneys from the Central Division during a brown bag luncheon. They discussed various topics, including: the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP), creditor abuse and mortgage fraud issues, the next generation of CM/ECF and other general questions on bankruptcy procedures. The brown bag sessions held by the Bankruptcy Court are the perfect opportunity for attorneys to be able to listen in on current bankruptcy issues and ask questions so they have a better understanding of new bankruptcy laws and procedures. The Bankruptcy Court holds brown bag luncheons at various times throughout the year in all divisions, so be sure to attend the next brown bag discussion near you. The court would like to thank the Missouri Bar for hosting the session in Jefferson City.
