C. Scott Pryor
The American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI) has named Regent University School of Law professor Scott Pryor the Robert M. Zinman ABI Resident Scholar for the spring 2013 semester.
ABI names a resident scholar each semester to help further the organization's research and solutions for insolvency. During his appointment, Pryor will be based in ABI's Alexandria, Va., office, assisting ABI with its educational programming and in its role as the authoritative source of bankruptcy information for Congress, the media and the public.
"Serving as Resident Scholar is an honor and an opportunity," said Pryor. "It is an honor to be recognized for my work in this field of law and an opportunity to be of service to the larger legal community."
Pryor has been a professor in the School of Law since 1998, and was a Fulbright Scholar to National Law University-Jodhpur (India) in 2009. He has written and lectured extensively on bankruptcy, contract law and Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code.
"So far I've spent time designing a 'nuts and bolts' continuing legal education program for new lawyers. The program will run a full day with parallel tracks for lawyers emphasizing consumer bankruptcies or business bankruptcies," Pryor explained. "I am also fielding calls from various news organizations (Dow Jones News, Wall Street Journal, South Florida Business Journal) about bankruptcy issues, as well as beginning to design 'on demand' podcasts for lawyers who want more in-depth information about discrete topics in bankruptcy law."
Pryor has been an ABI member for many years. ABI is the largest multi-disciplinary, nonpartisan organization dedicated to research and education on matters related to insolvency. The ABI membership includes more than 13,000 attorneys, accountants, bankers, judges, professors, lenders, turnaround specialists and other bankruptcy professionals.
