The Bankruptcy Committee of the Monroe County Bar Association will conduct a two hour CLE (Continuing Legal Education) seminar on the new exemption update law signed by the Governor last week on Tuesday, January 18 at 2:30 PM. This is a change from the originally-anticipated date, January 21. We moved the CLE from the 21st to the 18th so that we would get maximum attendance and not conflict with trustee or plan confirmation hearings.
Committee Chair Bill Neild and I will be the two panelists doing the presentation. We will be reviewing the changes to New York exemption law for both judgment and bankruptcy debtors, and we will spend a majority of the time reviewing the federal bankruptcy exemptions. Of course, attorneys from outside Monroe County are very much welcome to attend. The CLE should be posted on the MCBA web site within a week or so.
