The Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal (EBDJ) is a law review for bankruptcy legal scholarship.[1] It was established in 1984 with the help of legendary bankruptcy judge William L. Norton Jr., Charles A. Shanor, Mark Budnitz, and Dean Thomas Morgan as the Bankruptcy Developments Journal. Since that time, EBDJ has become the Emory University School of Law's most widely distributed publication, the only national bankruptcy journal edited, produced, and published entirely by law students, and a prominent journal for bankruptcy scholarship.[2] The Journal publishes semi-annually, featuring professional and student articles on a broad range of bankruptcy and restructuring topics.[3]

Past authors include: Douglas G. Baird, David Skeel, Bruce A. Markell, Ralph Brubaker, David G. Epstein, Anthony J. Casey, Nathalie Martin, Richard Levin, Laura Bartell, Jeanne L. Schroeder, Lawrence Ponoroff, Harvey R. Miller, David Gray Carlson, John C. McCoid II, Vern Countryman, Peter W. Rodino, Daniel J. Bussel, Brad B. Erens, Anthony V. Sexton, Stanley A. Kaplan, Raymond Nimmer, Robert M. Lawless, Robert Rasmussen, Martin J. Bienenstock, Ingrid Michelsen Hillinger, Dorothy A. Brown, Steven H. Resnicoff, Marcia Yablon-Zug, Tiffany R. Harper, Matthew Bruckner, Veryl Victoria Miles, Pamela Foohey, Jeffrey Davis, George Kuney, Barry E. Adler, Rafael I. Pardo, Gary W. Marsh, David Lander, Michael St. Patrick Baxter, Jonathan Lipson, Robert J. Landry III, Joy Flowers Conti, Laura Napoli Coordes, Bernice B. Donald, Mechele Dickerson, Bruce Ahrendsen, Stephen Lubben, Harry Fletchtner, David Keating, William Schwarzer, and John Warren Kindt.

In 2003, EBDJ began hosting a Symposium in the spring semester, which brings together legal scholars and practitioners from across the country to discuss timely bankruptcy law topics. Notably, the first Symposium editor of EBDJ was Sage M. Sigler, now a U.S. bankruptcy judge in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.[4]

Keith Shapiro, an alum who helped launch EBDJ in the early 1980s (and longtime Chairman of Greenberg Traurig), established the Keith J. Shapiro writing awards in 1999, providing an award to two EBDJ students, one for the best consumer bankruptcy article and one for the best corporate bankruptcy article written for the journal during each academic year.[5]

Each year, EBDJ hosts its Banquet in the spring semester and honors an individual who has significantly affected the field of insolvency and restructuring law with the Distinguished Service Award for Lifetime Achievement.[6] Previous honorees include: William L. Norton, Jr., Kenneth N. Klee, Frank R. Kennedy, Harvey R. Miller, David H. Coar, Gerald K. Smith, Conrad B. Duberstein, Dennis W. DeConcini, W. Homer Drake, Jr., Douglas G. Baird, Elizabeth Warren, Barry W. Ridings, Tony Alvarez II, Bryan Marsal, Geoffrey B. Morawetz, Richard Levin, David G. Epstein, Marjorie Girth, Grant W. Newton, Keith J. Shapiro, Mary F. Walrath, James H.M. Sprayregen, and Jay Alix.[7]
