The Bankruptcy Section is hosting its first “Consumer Rap” of the season with a get together on November 10 at the offices of Parker & Associates. The “Rap” sessions are opportunities for practitioners who represent individual debtors as well as those who represent creditors to come together informally and talk about the practical issues faced when representing their clients – how to do their jobs effectively as well as ways to improve their respective practices and the interactions between counsel. There is no formal “speaker” as we ask those who are coming to bring with them their knowledge and experience (forms are welcome too) and together have a discussion (hence the get together is called a “rap” ). These gatherings are informal, cooperative and a benefit all in attendance.
This first session is extremely timely in light of what is going on in the world of foreclosure. We are going to be talking about the current state of the practice in light of the recently enacted emergency law Chapter 258 of the Acts of 2010 “An Act relative to Mortgage Foreclosures” as well as the foreclosure moratorium and other related rule changes and how courts and clients are responding.
Please bring some food or drink to share and come ready to “rap”.
Please RSVP to the BBA as soon as possible as space is limited!
Hope to see you there. Nina Parker
