Bankruptcy and Creditors Rights Committee
The Committee endeavors to provide a forum for the Bankruptcy Bar and the members of the WCBA to discuss and exchange ideas and practice issues concerning Bankruptcy and Creditors Rights. The scope of the Committee’s involvement includes substantive and procedural issues as well as practical day to day administrative questions. The Southern District of New York Bankruptcy Court utilizes electronic filing of cases and documents, and we have coordinated with the Clerk's office to keep the bar at large informed. A link to The Southern District of New York Bankruptcy Court web page is provided below, as are several other links of interest.
