ABI's Seventeenth Annual Chief Judge Conrad B. Duberstein National Moot Court Competition on Bankruptcy Law

March 14 - 16, 2009 • St. John's University School of Law


The Duberstein Competition is the only national competition devoted to bankruptcy law. The event is co-sponsored each year by St. John's University School of Law and the American Bankruptcy Institute. It is named in honor of Judge Conrad B. Duberstein, a St. John's alumnus (Class of 1941) and former ABI Director, who was one of the longest-serving bankruptcy judges in the United States. He was appointed to the bench in 1981 after a long and successful career as a bankruptcy attorney. Judge Duberstein served as the recalled Chief Judge of the Eastern District of New York in his beloved Brooklyn until his death at age 90, on November 18, 2005. This Competition is a fitting tribute to his lasting memory.

Evelyn Seeler, Michael Blumenthal, Mark Lichtenstein and Steven Eichel will attend.
