Articles Welcome

The Debtor/Creditor Rights Committee presents articles of interest to the Michigan practitioner including a brief synopsis of Michigan BAPCPA cases, both bankruptcy and non-bankruptcy Michigan Creditor Rights decisions, announcements from the Judge's Corner, and Committee News.

We welcome short articles on any topic relating to creditors rights. We know you're busy - we're all busy. That's why we like articles which don't take long to read and don't take long to write. A paragraph or two is just fine. You'll get a byline and we'll get content.
