Georgia State University College of Law On February 8, 2019, the Bankruptcy Section presented its Annual Bankruptcy and Commercial Law Year in Review program at the Capital City Club. Over seventy section members attended the program and enjoyed the opportunity to hear from the distinguished panelists on the latest bankruptcy and commercial law case developments from the last year. The morning session focused on recent developments in bankruptcy law and included the Honorable Paul W. Bonapfel, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Northern District of Georgia, and the Honorable Mary Grace Diehl (Ret.), U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Northern District of Georgia. Additional panelists for the morning session were Harris Winsberg (Troutman Sanders LLP) and Beth Anne Harrill, law clerk for the Honorable Paul W. Bonapfel, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Northern District of Georgia. The afternoon session focused on commercial law developments and was presented by C. Edward Dobbs (Parker, Hudson, Rainer & Dobbs LLP) and Alfred S. Lurey (Kilpatrick Townsend LLP).

The Bankruptcy Section also hosted its first breakfast of the year on Thursday, January 17, 2019. Nathan Juster, an attorney with the Home Defense Program of Atlanta Legal Aid Society, Inc., presented on home loss mitigation programs. The event was well attended by twenty-five attendees, including several judges, who gathered at the offices of Alston & Bird LLP in Midtown Atlanta. It was a highly informative and engaging program that ended with Mr. Juster fielding several questions from the attentive audience.
