The American College of Bankruptcy (the “College”) recently announced its 2020 Regent selections, naming Sidley’s Jennifer Hagle as Regent for the Ninth Circuit. Jennifer has been a fellow of the College since 2015.
The American College of Bankruptcy is an honorary public service association of United States and international insolvency professionals who are invited to join as Fellows on an invitation-only basis after demonstration of excellence in the field over a number of years. Jennifer’s three shining decades of success representing some of the most notable and complex bankruptcy and out-of-court restructuring transactions of our time make her an ideal fit.
The distinguished honor of serving as Regent is reserved only for those who uphold “the highest standard of professionalism, ethics, character, integrity, professional expertise and leadership in contributing to the enhancement of bankruptcy and insolvency processes; sustained evidence of scholarship, teaching, lecturing or writing on bankruptcy or insolvency; and commitment to elevate knowledge and understanding of the profession and public respect for the practice.” One Regent is appointed from each of the 11 federal judicial circuits and three Regents are appointed At Large. Each Regent of a federal judicial circuit serves as Chair of its Circuit Admissions Council.
The College plays an important role in sustaining professional excellence and supports educational and pro bono efforts in local communities around the country, including professional educational programs, sponsoring the publication of scholarly reports and maintaining the National Bankruptcy Archives. In all of its work, the College is dedicated to enhancing professionalism, scholarship and service in bankruptcy and insolvency law and practice.
