Other Section Accomplishments
The Section’s written publication, the Bankruptcy Bulletin, reorganized and reformatted with two new editors, Karl Johnson, and Jeffrey Klobucar. The reformatting included shorter but more frequently published article, with additional distribution via e-mail and posting to the bankruptcy section’s website. As part of this effort, members of the Bulletin met more frequently and became more engaged as young section members.
