The online course will be taught live via web stream by Lawrence Ahern, a leading expert in the field and co-author of the West Bankruptcy Procedure Manual“In bankruptcy practice, understanding the nuance of procedure is often the key to success, Professor Ahern says. “This course will increase the practitioner’s sophistication, benefitting clients, and imparting practical skills needed to prevail over adversaries.”

"Larry Ahern is a talented teacher with extraordinary depth of knowledge and practical experience. He literally wrote the book on procedure,” said Professor G. Ray Warner, St. John’s Associate Dean for Bankruptcy Studies and director of the LL.M. in Bankruptcy program.
