About the Program

Minimize write-offs and judicial concerns. Together, Professor Rapoport and Mr. Bovitz will identify the tips, traps, and best practices of lawyer billing. This fast moving and fun program will focus on best (and not so best) practices of legal billing.

Professor Rapoport serves as a fee examiner in major bankruptcy cases. Her work covers the intersection of ethics with various fields including the behavior of lawyers generally; the dynamics of law firms; the ethics of corporate governance; and the interaction of artificial intelligence with the reasonableness of professional fees.

Any lawyer whom seeks an award of attorney fees or needs to have his or her fees reviewed by a court or a corporate auditor will gain valuable insight from this program.

This program is presented by the Bankruptcy Law section, chaired by Erick A. Diaz. This program is chaired by Robert C. Aronoff. Find out more about the section at
