Bankruptcy Section Annual Meeting and Judge Kishel's Retirement Reception

Deadline to Register: May 5, 2016 | PRE-REGISTRATON BY THE DEADLINE IS REQUIRED | We will NOT be accepting registrations at the door for this special event.

Judge Kishel will give us his parting thoughts as he prepares to leave the bench. His time on the bench and his remarks will cover a multitude of important events in the history of the institution. From the early 80's as part of the group of "Legacy Judges" who were adapting to jurisdictional changes to the court; to becoming the first electronic court in Minnesota; implementing changes from BAPCPA; and presiding over the largest Ponzi scheme in Minnesota history, Judge Kishel's time on the bench has covered a number of significant events. Judge Kishel's remarks are sure to entertain and educate, in true testament to his 32 years of service.

A reception honoring Judge Kishel as he retires from the bench will follow.
