About Our Section

The purpose of the Commercial Law & Bankruptcy Section is “to promote objectives of the State Bar Association of Connecticut within the field of commercial law and bankruptcy.” (Section 2, Bylaws of Commercial Law & Bankruptcy Section of the Connecticut Bar Association) This section achieves this purpose by encouraging the free exchange of ideas and scholarship among its members and by providing a forum to educate and update its members in matters of interest in the area of creditor/debtor relations in commercial transactions. To further these goals, each monthly section meeting is open to the entire section, and attendance is encouraged.
