The American Bankruptcy Institute and Suffolk University Law School's Advanced Legal Studies program will sponsor the Second Annual Northeast Consumer Winter Forum, a daylong educational program focusing on litigation in consumer bankruptcy cases.

The program will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, January 18, at the Law School, 120 Tremont St., Boston.

Panel discussions will be led by experts on current substantive issues in consumer bankruptcy cases, and a litigation skills forum will feature advice from bankruptcy judges and litigators.

Those attending are invited to join American Bankruptcy Institute Executive Director Samuel J. Gerdano, a former chief counsel to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, for a lunchtime discussion on current and prospective legislative developments.

A reception will follow the conclusion of the program at 4:30 p.m.

Registration required.
