Womble Carlyle attorney Jennifer Lyday is one of 40 bankruptcy attorneys from across the nation participating in the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges’ Next Generation Program.

The Next Generation Program targets bankruptcy practitioners with five to 10 years of experience. During the NCBJ’s four-day Annual Meeting in October, participants will have intensive learning opportunities with more than 20 bankruptcy judges and 10 senior bankruptcy lawyers. The program also features networking opportunities with other Next Generation lawyers and alumni.

Final participants were selected from a computerized lottery program. But to be nominated, the prospective program participant must:

  • Have five to ten years of experience practicing law;
  • Devote at least fifty percent of his/her practice to bankruptcy cases;
  • Demonstrate legal excellence in the practice of bankruptcy law;
  • Display a serious commitment to principles of civility, ethics and professionalism; and
  • Demonstrate commitment to the continued educational development of bankruptcy professionals and to professional activities that will benefit the public, members of the bar and the court system.

Lyday is the second Womble Carlyle attorney to participate in the NextGen program, as Ericka Johnson was a participant in 2015.
