Professor Nancy Rapoport to Present on Bankruptcy Fees Webinar

Nancy B. Rapoport is the Gordon Silver Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On May 28, Professor Rapoport will participate as a panelist in a webinar titled, "Bankruptcy Fees in Large Chapter 11 Cases." The webinar, approved for 1.5 CLE credits, is being hosted by the National Association of Legal Fee Analysis.

The course description reads, "Panelists address why the Bankruptcy Code makes the court review fees for reasonableness and examine the new fee guidelines set forth by the USDOJ's U.S. Trustee Program. Panelists focus their discussion on the role, benefits and results of the options available for bankruptcy courts: fee examiners, fee review committees, fee auditors and software programs. They also offer a host of red flags that trigger a review of fees and consider interim fee awards versus final fee awards. Finally, panelists conclude with a discussion of the Baker Botts v. ASARCO case currently pending before the U.S. Supreme Court."

Professor Rapoport's specialties are bankruptcy ethics, ethics in governance, and the depiction of lawyers in popular culture.
