Nuts and Bolts of Consumer Bankruptcy Practice Seminars

The U.S. Trustee’s office is sponsoring free “Nuts and Bolts of Consumer Bankruptcy Practice” seminars in three locations in the Western District of Missouri in September, 2017.  Approximately six free hours of Missouri CLE credit will be offered and the Court has graciously agreed to provide a complimentary lunch for those who attend.  Attorneys’ staff members can attend, too.

While these seminars are targeted to newer consumer bankruptcy practitioners and their staff, attorneys with more experience and their staff are also welcome to attend.  In addition, the U.S. Trustee will contact local law schools to invite law students to attend so they can learn about the practice of consumer bankruptcy law.  Each seminar will feature a debtor’s attorney, the Chapter 13 trustee or his staff, local Chapter 7 trustees, an attorney from the U.S. Trustee’s office, Bankruptcy Court Clerk’s staff and a Bankruptcy Judge.  

Note that seating will be fairly limited in Springfield and Jefferson City so register early.  If you are unable to get into the sessions in Springfield or Jefferson City, feel free to register for the session in Kansas City where we’ll have a much larger space available.  
If you have questions, feel free to contact Barb Marquez or Kate Strauss at the U.S. Trustee’s office in Kansas City, Missouri at (816) 512-1940.

Just choose the one location and date you’d like to attend from one of the following links.  You’ll then be directed to a registration form for the course.  A separate form needs to be completed for each person in your office who will like to attend.
