About the event

The Jacksonville Bankruptcy Bar Association cordially invites you attend the 30th annual Bankruptcy Seminar on August 16, 2024 for a full day seminar in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida at the Sawgrass Marriott Resort & Spa. Our annual seminar brings together leading jurists, experts, and bankruptcy practitioners for a full day of sessions and CLE credit.

The Seminar will begin with a discussion on cybersecurity by Mark Lanterman of  Computer Forensic Services. Mr. Lanterman has provided training in digital  evidence, computer forensics, and cybersecurity to the U.S. Supreme Court and  numerous state and federal judicial conferences across the United States, including  the Federal Judicial Conferences for the Eighth and Eleventh Circuits. 

Following Mr. Lanterman’s presentation will be the Judges’ panel discussing recent  case law updates. Notably, the panel will include each of the Judges from the  Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa Divisions of the Middle District and the Northern  District of Florida. After the Judges’ panel and lunch break, Professor Justin Sevier from Florida State  College of Law will discuss the law of evidence. Professor Sevier focuses on legal  institutional design, where he identifies and examines the conditions under which  the public willingly legitimizes legal rules, actors, and tribunals. Professor Sevier  explores his research questions primarily through psychology experiments in the law  of evidence (studying both jury behavior and non-lawyers’ perceptions of trial  outcomes), while also examining the role that popular legitimacy plays in shaping the  law governing business torts and consumer behavior. 

To close the Seminar, there will be two breakout sessions – a consumer session with  a Mock Chapter 13 Trial and a business session focusing on Hot Topics in Business  Bankruptcies, including Merchant Cash Advance Lenders
