Founded in 1984 by legendary bankruptcy judge William L. Norton Jr. and the only student-run bankruptcy journal in the United States, the Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal publishes semi-annually, featuring professional and student articles on a broad range of bankruptcy topics. This widely-read print and online journal provides a forum for research, debate, and information for practitioners, scholars, and the public. EBDJ also hosts a Symposium in the spring semester, which brings together legal scholars and practitioners from across the country to discuss timely bankruptcy law topics.
EBDJ’s continued success is due to its commitment to both practical and scholarly discussion. EBDJ is a recognized source of accurate, timely, and practical information on the Bankruptcy Code. As such, EBDJ attracts submissions of professional articles from a broad array of leading authorities in the field. In addition to serving as a leading source of information on the Bankruptcy Code, EBDJ promotes scholarship that offers innovative solutions and course of actions for some of today's leading legal issues.
EBDJ is unique because the Journal is self-funded. The Journal is thankful for its sponsors, which in recent years include: Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, AlixPartners, Alston & Bird, Alvarez & Marsal, Arnall Golden Gregory, Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner, Dentons, Gibson Dunn, GlassRatner Advisory & Capital Group, Greenberg Traurig, International Women's Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation, Jones Day, Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton, King & Spalding, Morris Manning & Martin, Polsinelli, Potter Anderson Corroon, Taylor English, Troutman Pepper, Scroggins & Williamson, and SOLIC Capital Advisors.
