- Nancy B. Clark
I hope you all enjoyed the 10th Annual Review of 9th Circuit Decisions on Bankruptcy in 2015. Jonathan Hayes, Judge Brand and Judge Jury provided great insight into the notable cases in 2015 and made our 10th Annual Review another resounding success. I hope you also enjoyed our seminar on Substance Abuse and Elimination of Bias. Greg Durst from the Other Bar provided us a wealth of information on resources available to those facing substance abuse issues which have been saved in the files section on the listserv. Roksana Moradi and Maggie Bordeaux posed some interesting questions regarding bias in the legal profession and we thank them very much for their perception and passion.
In March, 2016 we will tackle the Intersection of Bankruptcy and Family Law with Judge Robles and Patrick Green. We will be dark in April and May. You may want to consider taking part in Leslie Cohen Law's 5K Run or Run/Walk event in beautiful Playa Del Rey on April 16, 2016 which benefits the Public Counsel Debtor Assistance Project and Santa Monica High School's Cross Country and Track program. In May, 2016 you may want to consider taking part in either NACBA's 24th Annual Convention from May 19-22, 2016 which will take place in San Francisco, or the 28th Annual California Bankruptcy Forum Insolvency Conference from May 20-22, 2016 which will be taking place in Indian Wells. We will be back on June 18, 2016 for our seminar on Ethics with Judge Tighe, Ron Moroko and Dennis McGoldrick. Our July has yet to be determined but will likely focus on Chapter 13.
Jonathan Hayes has been working on the Third Annual James T. King Bankruptcy Symposium which will take place on August 13, 2016 and will include the Honorable Paul Watford, Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, Judge Martin Barash and will again be moderated by our own Jonathan Hayes. In addition, Peter Lively and Ray Aver are working on a project we hope to unveil to you soon. Finally, this year the Annual Calvin Ashland Award Dinner will take place on November 3, 2016 and we will be awarding a Trustee with the Calvin Ashland Award this year.
The Board of Directors and I would like to thank you all for your participation in CDCBAA and hope to continue to provide you with knowledgeable and interesting continuing education seminars in the future.
Sincerely, Nancy B. Clark 2016 CDCBAA President
