NCBJ Program Connects and Educates the Next Generation of Bankruptcy Attorneys
The December 2015 edition of the American Bar Association’s Law Practice Today (LPT) features a first-person account by LRC associate Kimberly Brown detailing her experiences as a participant in the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges’ (NCBJ) Next Generation Program. In NCBJ Program Connects and Educates the Next Generation of Bankruptcy Attorneys, Kim provides information on how the NCBJ is helping to promote and support the next-generation of bankruptcy attorneys.
Forty attorneys in the country are selected each year to participate. The NCBJ created the program, which is part of its annual meeting each September, as a way to identify a small group of up-and-coming bankruptcy attorneys “who show the potential to distinguish themselves in future years as highly respected members of the bankruptcy bar.”
LPT, a monthly online publication of the ABA’s Law Practice Division, is distributed to nearly 500,000 lawyers and law students across the globe each month. Current and past issues can be accessed at www.lawpracticetoday.com.
