BASICS OF BUSINESS BANKRUPTCY

On June 7, 2013, The Financial Lawyers Conference and The Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy at UCLA School of Law are jointly sponsoring a full-day program on the fundamental issues involved in business bankruptcies.

This program is designed for professionals who deal with business bankruptcies but who are not yet expert in this field, either because they are relatively new to it or do not deal with it routinely. Professionals who are lawyers, financial advisors, bankers, analysts and managers at hedge, private equity and other types of funds, and others who deal with distressed companies, will benefit from this program. In addition to providing a foundation of knowledge, the program will allow attendees to establish and cultivate contacts with others involved in this arena. We encourage senior members of the institutions who receive this invitation to send their more junior colleagues to the program.

As reflected in the following agenda, the faculty for this program on the fundamentals of business bankruptcies consists of an array of leading practitioners and academics
