The American Bankruptcy
Institute has established an award in honor of the
late Professor Jean Braucher. James
Patrick Shea ('82) shares this announcement:
author of more than 50 articles, books and book
chapters, Professor Braucher was known among academics
as a pioneer thinker in the "law in action" tradition.
She was also active in legal reform efforts,
serving as a long-standing member in the American Law
Institute, the National Conference of Commissioners of
Uniform Laws, and most recently as a member of the
Administrative Claims Advisory Committee for the ABI
Commission to Study the Reform of Chapter 11. She
also served as an active member on the Advisory Board
for the Consumer Bankruptcy Fee Study. An ABI
member since 1999, Professor Braucher was inducted into
the American College of Bankruptcy in 2013. She
will be remembered not just for her many contributions
to consumer bankruptcy law, but also for her generosity,
warmth, humor and kindness.
year, the recipient of the Jean Braucher Award will be
the full-time academic member of ABI or U.S. bankruptcy
judge who best embodies Professor Braucher's personal
and professional qualities and whose work serves to
advance knowledge, thinking and improvements in the
consumer bankruptcy system.
The award, which
also includes a cash prize of $7,500, will be presented
annually at ABI's Winter Leadership Conference, starting
with this year's event on Dec. 3-5 at the Arizona
Biltmore Resort and Spa in Phoenix.
