The panels on Hot Topics in Consumer Bankruptcy Cases, Hot Topics in Business Bankruptcy Cases, Ethical Issues for Bankruptcy Practitioners, Recent Case and Rule Developments in Consumer Bankruptcy Cases, and Recent Case and Rule Developments in Business Bankruptcy Cases will return to the program this year.  In addition, judges from Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and Washington, DC will participate in the Judges’ Round Table on Consumer Bankruptcy Topics and the Judges’ Round Table on Business Bankruptcy Topics.  The program also will include a panel on the Small Business Reorganization Act, a frank discussion with the Maryland judicial law clerks called Listen to the Law Clerks, practical demonstrations with Cross Examination of a Real Estate Appraiser and Cross Examination of a Valuation Expert, and an entertaining game of Bankruptcy Jeopardy.
