RALEIGH, N.C. - Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard offered two presentations at separate conferences over the course of Oct. 30-Nov. 2 in Atlanta, Ga. Leonard’s presentation, “Leaving the Bench,” was delivered during The American College of Bankruptcy’s (ACB) 2013 Fall All-Fellows Luncheon, while he followed by presenting “The Role of Empirical Research in the Bankruptcy System” during the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges (NCBJ) to more than 2,000 bankruptcy judges, insolvency lawyers and professionals, and international jurists.

“I enjoyed the opportunity to serve as a representative of Campbell Law at these prestigious gatherings, and I am honored to have been in a position to present, share, and expand on my experiences on the bench with my fellow colleagues,” said Leonard.

The ACB is an honorary association of bankruptcy and insolvency professionals. Its Fellows include: commercial bankruptcy attorneys, consumer bankruptcy attorneys, corporate turnaround specialists, U.S. trustees, bankruptcy trustees, investment bankers, insolvency accountants, law professors, judges, government officials, appraisers, and others involved in the bankruptcy and insolvency community.
