Bankruptcy Institute Law Review,
Center for Bankruptcy Studies and Center
for Law and Religion at St. John's School of Law are pleased to
present their Fall 2011 symposium:
Religion and Bankruptcy: Perspectives Thereon and
From the time of its creation and throughout its evolution,
bankruptcy law has affected and been affected by religion.
Important aspects of current bankruptcy law, such as the discharge
of debt and the exemption of personal property, originated in
religious traditions before making their way into secular law. At
the same time, religious individuals and institutions are
themselves often parties in bankruptcy cases, and a number of
Bankruptcy Code provisions specifically address religious matters.
This symposium will bring together leading bankruptcy experts and
thinkers who will examine both sides of this relationship.
