Bankruptcy law is complex enough. Add in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, the Local Bankruptcy Rules of the Central District, and practitioners have a maddening maze to navigate with their clients.
The Central District of California's rules are particularly complex in their length and scope, but also how they interweave the Court Manual and local forms as well.
This is the first of a series of free continuing legal education (CLE) sessions to help practitioners in Central District refresh and discover new aspects of the rules they possibly hadn't previously considered.
