Beyond the Headlines: Bankruptcy in the Shadow of COVID-19
May 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Within the last two decades, major shocks such as the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the global financial crisis, and the COVID-19 pandemic have fueled and complicated the use and effectiveness of the American bankruptcy system.
Join UNC School of Law’s New York City Alumni Regional Club and Melissa B. Jacoby, Graham Kenan Professor of Law, for Beyond the Headlines: Bankruptcy in the Shadow of COVID-19 (sponsored by Greenberg Traurig, LLP), where you will explore how a shock like each of these events intersects with bankruptcy use in a variety of contexts.
This presentation is of interest to lawyers specializing in other areas because it will highlight how restructuring professionals and other repeat players in the bankruptcy system use crises like the pandemic to advance expansive and “off-label” uses of bankruptcy that affect legal and policy issues far beyond its intended domain.
Approval pending for one hour of CLE credit for attending this event.
