President’s Corner

Welcome to the brand new website for the Eastern District of Washington Bankruptcy Bar Association (“EDWABA”)!  I am honored to be your president for the 2017-2018 year.  This association of bankruptcy professionals is one of the most collegiate and caring associations that I have ever been part of.  Every year this association works in connection with the Eastern District of Washington Bankruptcy Court to award a deserving Gonzaga Law Student with a scholarship to extern (internships with class credits) with the bankruptcy court.  These externs have gone on to become successful bankruptcy practitioners all across the states.

As a former extern, I admire the EDWABA’s commitment to young professionals interested in bankruptcy and practical education.  In addition to the scholarship, the EDWABA is known for its history of relevant and timely Notes publication.  Notes is a members-only publication that features articles, statistics, and information that is worthwhile for any bankruptcy practitioner is the Eastern District of Washington.  The Notes publication is currently in transition and will be moving to an online format.  Please stay tuned to the website for the next generation of Notes!  We are always looking for new articles and authors, so please do not hesitate to contact us with your ideas and thoughts.

See you all at Sun Mountain!
