19th Annual Hon. Conrad B. Duberstein Bankruptcy Moot Court Competition and Gala Awards Banquet
March 7, 2011
Pier 60, Chelsea Piers, NY
The annual Hon. Conrad B. Duberstein Bankruptcy Moot Court Competition is widely recognized as one of the nation’s preeminent moot court competitions.
The competition promotes and recognizes the finest oral and written advocacy on significant issues in bankruptcy practice. Approximately 50 law school teams participate, making this the largest single site appellate moot court competition.
Jointly sponsored by St. John’s University School of Law and the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI), the competition is named in memory of St. John’s alumnus, former ABI Director and former Chief Judge Conrad B. Duberstein. ABI is the largest multidisciplinary membership organization devoted to research and education on insolvency issues. St. John’s is a leader in bankruptcy education and offers the premier LL.M. in bankruptcy law.
The Duberstein Competition is well known for the quality of its judging. New York is a center of bankruptcy practice, and area bankruptcy practitioners judge the preliminary rounds and briefs. Advanced rounds are judged by New York-area bankruptcy judges and more than a dozen leading appellate and bankruptcy judges from around the country.
The competition culminates in a gala awards banquet at scenic Pier 60, Chelsea Piers in Manhattan. The banquet draws more than 1,000 attendees, including many leading bankruptcy judges and practitioners.
Steve Eichel and Mark Lichtenstein will attend this event.
