The primary function of the Bankruptcy and Commercial Law Section is to facilitate communication among its members concerning bankruptcy and commercial law matters and legal decisions, with a view toward promoting consistent application of these laws in the various districts and circuits of Alabama. The section has four standing committees: bankruptcy practice; commercial practice; CLE/annual meeting; and communications/newsletter. Additional committees are appointed on an ad hoc basis. The section sponsors CLE programs and law school writing competition, and is also involved in promoting legislation needed in the commercial law practice. The annual dues for section membership are $20.
