In November 2003 the Court, in conjunction with the S.C. Bankruptcy Association, conducted in Columbia a ½ day seminar for young attorneys and attorneys new to the bankruptcy practice in the District. Presentations included practice and advocacy tips from the judges, and sessions on working with the Clerk’s Office, United States Trustee, and Chapter 13 and 7 trustees. There may be a minimal cost to cover the production of materials and refreshments. Attendees will receive CLE credit.

If there is sufficient interest, we would consider conducting a similar seminar during April or May.
