Designated Federal Circuit Communities For NACBA Membership
It has been long talked about, the day has arrived. One of the single most valuable benefits of NACBA membership is the “Listserv.” The Listserv platform provides accurate, timely and essential information for all attorneys who practice consumer bankruptcy law. Over the past 18 months, NACBA has promoted the adoption of a new listserv platform entitled “NACBA Communities.” The new platform, in addition to an SEO Find an Attorney service for the general public, offers NACBA Members a secure online community (both via email and web) to continue their discussion on various topics.
Given the growth of social media and homegrown local discussion, NACBA believes it is CRUCIAL to maintain a SECURE online community where the information shared is both accurate and timely. Also, while local and state bankruptcy news remains important, the bankruptcy case law updates (& news) from the Circuit a member practice in is VITAL.
Effective today on the NACBA Communities platform (A.K.A. NEW Listerv), are designated Communities for each Federal Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals. The mission and vision of each Circuit Community is
The # Circuit Community is an online NACBA Listserv dedicated to providing meaningful, insightful and timely coverage of bankruptcy decisions impacting consumer attorneys and debtors within the purview of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Led by an appointed discussion leader, this NACBA Community seeks to keep the membership abreast of developments and trends within the # Circuit and their impact on contemporary jurisprudence.
While each Circuit Community will grow with organic discussion, NACBA is proud the announce the following Circuit Discussion Leaders who will not only provide weekly information as it relates to each Circuit but also will present (Circuit Case Law Round-Up) in-person at NACBA’s Annual Convention.
