Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal


I'm honored to introduce Richard Levin on a special occasion. Tonight, the Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal is conferring on Rich its Distinguished Service Award for Lifetime Achievement. This is the fifteenth time that the award has been given, each time to an individual who has had both large and positive effects on the ways in which debt is treated. Although the award was initially given to U.S. lawyers, judges, and law professors, the Journal's recent awards have recognized the increasingly international nature of commercial activity and the effectiveness of business acumen as well as legal skill in treating debt. And so it has conferred its Distinguished Service Award on leaders in accounting and management services, and, most recently, on a prominent Canadian jurist.
