As previously reported, Bill Neild and I will be doing a two hour CLE (Continuing Legal Education) seminar on the New York Updated Exemptions Law on January 18 at 2:30 PM. The CLE is being done for the Monroe County Bar Association at the Bar Center in Rochester, but the CLE is also available online as a live webcast. As near as I can tell, this is the only CLE scheduled in New York State on this issue at this time. The new law goes into effect January 21, so bankruptcy practitioners around New York need to become familiar with the changes in state law - and equally familiar with the newly available federal exemptions. You may contact the link above to register for the live webcast, or find it at the Monroe County Bar Association website, under CLE.
