About the Mentoring Program
Each quarter, the Bankruptcy Judges will have a short program on the basics of
lawyering in bankruptcy court. The program is generally designed and geared for lawyers within their first five years of practice or new to the practice of bankruptcy law. The Judges also have an e-mail distribution list for announcements and other
communication with the participants.
