Duberstein 2016

In the spring of 2015 I posted several times about the experience of coaching a team from Regent University law school at the premier bankruptcy law moot competition (here, here, and here), which St. John's University law school has hosted every year. Duberstein 2015 focused on something close to every student's heart, the dischargeability of student loans. This time around, and drawing from the ignition switch litigation plaguing the aftermath of the reorganization of General Motors, Duberstein 2016 returns to the complexities of Chapter 11 and the constitutional scope of bankruptcy court jurisdiction. You can read the fact pattern here.

I regret that Regent has not entered a team this time. I am pleased, however, that my new academic home, Campbell University School of Law, will be sending a team to this year's competition thanks to the generosity of Raleigh-based law firm Stubbs & Perdue, P.A. (Read the news release here.) I look forward to mooting Campbell's team as it prepares for this opportunity to shine before America's leading bankruptcy judges and professionals in New York in March.
