Young Lawyers Committee




About Us

The Young Lawyer Committee of the Bankruptcy Section of the State Bar of Texas exists to increase the involvement and profile of young attorneys and turnaround professionals involved in bankruptcy and reorganization practice in Texas.  The Committee helps organize and host seminars geared to young professionals, and provides speaking and participation opportunities in statewide continuing legal education seminars.  It also organizes networking events throughout Texas for consumer and business professionals, giving young attorneys excellent opportunities to meet turnaround professionals, other attorneys, and members of the judiciary.  Committee members participate in organizing and running the annual Elliott Cup Bankruptcy Moot Court, have composed an informational pamphlet in partnership with the Texas Young Lawyers Association geared towards consumers contemplating filing bankruptcy, and have been involved in numerous other worthwhile projects.  A part of the Bankruptcy Section of the State Bar of Texas, the Young Lawyers Committee meets monthly via telephone and in person when possible.

All young attorneys with a bankruptcy or reorganization practice, debtor or creditor, business or consumer, urban or rural, are eligible for membership and welcome to join us and get involved!  Please contact any current member or myself if you are interested in joining our Committee.
