Bankruptcy Inn of the Court

This is a letter I received recently regarding the formation of the Southern California Bankruptcy Inn of the Court.  I was in an Inn of the Court several years ago and it was one of my favorite experiences.  If you are interested in joining, call Brett Curlee at the number below.  Our first meeting is scheduled for October 16, 2007. 

Dear Professor Hayes,

My name is Brett Curlee and I am the President of the Central District of California Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys Association (CDCBAA). The CDCBAA represents 120 consumer bankruptcy attorneys in the Central District of California, and is the second largest consumer bankruptcy attorney organization in the United States.

Our organization was very excited to receive a charter from the American Inn Of Court to form the first ever Inn of Court here in Southern California devoted exclusively to the practice of bankruptcy law and litigation, the Southern California Bankruptcy Inn of Court.

I am writing to invite you and other professors from West Los Angeles School of Law who teach bankruptcy law, and students interested in practicing bankruptcy law to join our Inn.

The purpose of the Inn is to foster communication, civility, and professionalism in the bankruptcy courts, and more importantly, for senior bankruptcy attorneys and judges to mentor young lawyers and law students who wish to become bankruptcy lawyers or have an interest in bankruptcy law.

The Inn will meet 6 times this year, 2007-2008, starting in October 2007. This will be an excellent opportunity for UWLA students who have an interest in bankruptcy law to meet the Bankruptcy Judges and the senior preeminent bankruptcy and insolvency lawyers and faculty of various law schools in the Central District of California, and to gain an insight into the practice of bankruptcy law. With the recent changes in the bankruptcy code, there will also be an opportunity for students to discuss and debate the issues that practitioners are grappling with in the bankruptcy court on a daily basis.

I am very proud to offer this opportunity to you and your students. The invitations will be mailed shortly, and we are looking forward to meeting you at the Inn.

If you or any of your faculty or students have questions about participating in the Inn, please feel free to call me at (310) 203-3084.

Very Truly Yours,

Brett B. Curlee President of the CDCBAA President of the Southern California Bankruptcy Inn of Court
