Welcome to the Bankruptcy Law Section of the State Bar of Texas.  The section is open to practitioners and other professionals working in the area of bankruptcy law and insolvency.

The section sponsors or supports numerous events throughout the year, including a biennial bench bar conference, the Elliott Cup moot court competition, “Moneywise” and many other programs.  We also publish a newsletter and try to be a source of other substantive content and news affecting bankruptcy and insolvency practice. 

Finally, you can check our calendar and keep up with bankruptcy-related events throughout the state.

We welcome and congratulate the section’s new chair, Tom Rice.  Tom is a member of Pulman, Cappuccio Pullen and Benson, LLP, in its San Antonio office.  Learn more about Tom and his perspective as section chair in his Letter from the Chair.
