Do Not Forget – May 3, 2017 is Nomination Day
The NCBJ will host the fifth Next Generation Program at its annual meeting in Las Vegas from October 8 - 11, 2017. The program is designed to host 40 up-and-coming bankruptcy practitioners with five to 10 years of experience. Nominations for qualified program candidates will be accepted on May 3, 2017 from noon to 5 pm Eastern Time.
A candidate should:
- devote at least 50 percent of his/her practice to bankruptcy cases;
- demonstrate legal excellence in the practice of bankruptcy law;
- demonstrate a commitment to the continued educational development of bankruptcy professionals and professional activities that will benefit the public, members of the bar and the court system; and
- display a serious commitment to principles of civility, ethics and professionalism.
Only one attorney from any single law firm may participate. The cost of attendance at the Annual Meeting must be borne by the participant or his or her law firm, but no additional cost will be incurred to attend the Next Generation judicial roundtable and networking and reunion receptions described below. There will be a charge for the optional reunion dinner. We anticipate that, consistent with past years, five scholarships will be available to qualified candidates.
Watch for additional details on how to nominate your candidate and for the special events that will be held exclusively for Next Generation participants, including a judicial roundtable discussion (a unique opportunity to meet with prominent judges and senior attorneys in a small-group setting); a networking reception (a chance to build contacts and relationships as the participant progresses in your firm's practice); and a reception and dinner with NextGen participants from prior years.
