Creditor's Practice, Ethics, Bankruptcy Law

17th Annual Bankruptcy Law Forum


The 17th Annual Tennessee Bar Association Bankruptcy Law Forum will take place Nov. 13-15, 2020, at the Hilton Garden Inn in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Please make plans to join us in this wonderful and relaxing setting for an informative, unique retreat. Ten hours of CLE credit are available for this program, including three hours of ethics.

This high-quality program will begin on Friday afternoon with two CLE sessions. First, there will be an extensive presentation highlighting bankruptcy case law updates. You asked, and we listened! We've extended this session to last for two hours, so attendees are fully updated on developments in the law. The second session will feature an experienced panel of practitioners who will discuss the newly passed Small Business Reorganization Act, H.R. 3311. Included in the cost of the program is a Friday evening networking reception and dinner at The Park Grill. Attendees may bring guests for an additional $75.  When checking out, please select the number of guests you plan to bring.* 

On Saturday, attendees will be organized into small groups with a discussion leader drawn from a faculty of prominent bankruptcy judges. These small group discussions will focus on case problems that bring into focus recent developments in the law and real world problems that bankruptcy practitioners face. The judges will encourage the participants to analyze, discuss and argue different approaches to the case studies.

The program closes on Sunday with a three-hour session devoted to the ethical issues that arise in bankruptcy.


There is a room block at the Hilton Garden Inn in Gatlinburg for attendees of the program. Please book your room as soon as possible to ensure you receive the group rate. Any remaining rooms in the room book will be released on Oct. 12.
