REMOTE ONLY | The Birthing of Modern Bankruptcy Law in Minnesota, 1896-1910 - - First Findings

Event Description

Due to the current situation, this program is REMOTE-ONLY participation. There will be NO in-person attendance.   

Deadline to Register: May 17, 2020

The Section Annual Meeting and Officer Elections will be held at this meeting.  All section members are encouraged to attend.

The first permanent federal statute for bankruptcy relief was the Bankruptcy Act of 1898.  Its enactment and its early administration in Minnesota were handled by one prominent local politician and an interesting group of judges and referees.  In the law they applied and the problems they faced, there are striking similarities with the present—and large differences from it. 


The Honorable Gregory F. Kishel, retired U.S. Bankruptcy Judge, District of Minnesota
