CLE Programs

Our two-day William J. O'Neill Great Lakes Regional Bankruptcy Institute is one of the most respected bankruptcy programs in the Midwest, attracting premier national speakers, judges and our best local practitioners.  The 2016 O'Neill will be held on June 1 and 2 at the CMBA Conference Center.  Visit for more details.

In addition to the O'Neill, we partner with the TMA - Ohio Chapter for a half-day seminar in October, focused on topics relevant to practitioners and turnaround professionals.


Our Section Executive Committee meets monthly, and Section members are encouraged to contact our officers with questions or concerns.

The Section as a whole meets periodically throughout the year for lunch and one hour of CLE.
