Senior Fellows Project

In 2023, the Senior Fellows Committee launched an initiative in coordination with the Bankruptcy History Committee to collect the account of each Fellow who began working in the insolvency field in 1983 or earlier. In roughly 1,000 words, they want to know:

  • How and why you got involved in bankruptcy matters; 
  • Who, if anyone, were your early mentors; and
  • Which referees or judges presided over your cases.

They would love to collect over 150 narratives. To give you an idea of what they hope to receive, here are the narratives prepared by Judge Bob Gerber and Marc Levinson that already have been submitted.  If you want to participate, please email your submissions to Jenny Cudahy at

Senior Moments

Members of the Senior Fellows Committee have provided several articles of interest to those Fellows who are retired or considering retirement and a fruitful transition from a current career.
