Young Lawyers Committee Information
Welcome to the Bankruptcy Law Section of the State Bar of Texas. The section is open to practitioners and other professionals working in the area of bankruptcy law and insolvency.
The section sponsors or supports numerous events throughout the year, including a biennial bench bar conference, the Elliott Cup moot court competition, “Moneywise” and many other programs. We also publish a newsletter and try to be a source of other substantive content and news affecting bankruptcy and insolvency practice.
Check our calendar and the rest of this website to keep up with bankruptcy-related events throughout the state, including updates affected by the COVID-19 situation. Upcoming CLE events of interest include the Western District Bench-Bar, in Salado (moved to September 16-18). Please note that the Northern District Bench-Bar Conference, originally set for June, has been postponed indefinitely. The scheduled celebration of Judge Barbara Houser's term on the bench has also been postponed. We will do our best to keep our section updated. Please also check the respective bankruptcy court websites for updates and new standing orders.
