18th Annual Bankruptcy Law Forum


* Registration for this program has closed. There will be walk-in forms available for folks who would like to late register. Please email Chelsea Bennett at with any questions.**

The 18th Annual Tennessee Bar Association Bankruptcy Law Forum will take place March 31 - April 2, 2023, 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.

The forum kicks off Friday afternoon with three hours of high-quality CLE sessions. Included in the cost of the program is a Friday evening networking reception and dinner. Attendees may bring guests for an additional $85. 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 are what set the forum apart from other CLEs. They 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.

 * Please note that this additional guest fee is nonrefundable after March 1.
