The Tenth Annual Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal Symposium

Executive Symposium Editor

Introduction

The Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal hosted its Tenth Annual Symposium on February 28, 2013. Each year, EBDJ’s Symposium addresses current issues in bankruptcy law in a format that provides practicable information to today’s bankruptcy practitioners. With the help and support of the Atlanta Bankruptcy Bar, EBDJ’s Advisory Board, and our sponsoring firms, the Tenth Annual Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal Symposium was a tremendous success.

This year’s Symposium featured two panels: 1) a Corporate Panel Discussion focused on municipal restructuring; and 2) a Consumer Panel Discussion focused on exceptions to bankruptcy, especially defalcation in the upcoming Supreme Court case of Bullock v. BankChampaign.

The following represents an edited transcript of the panels. Again, EBDJ would like to thank the efforts of its Advisory Board members, the panelists, and moderators for their exceptional efforts on our behalf. Finally, I would like to thank Steve Ferketic, David Mayer, Sophia Priola, Alex Clamon, and the EBDJ staff for their personal efforts toward the success of this year’s symposium.
