Tulane Law Student Emily Ma has been selected by the American College of Bankruptcy as the 2006 Distinguished Bankruptcy Law Student from the Fifth Circuit.
Ma was nominated by Tulane Law School and chosen from among nominees from other law schools in Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi for her demonstrated talent and interest in bankruptcy law. As a 2006 Distinguished Bankruptcy Law Student, she will be honored in Washington D.C. in March at a reception along with other distinguished bankruptcy law students.
"Emily has repeatedly demonstrated academic achievement and interest in bankruptcy law--from her enrollment and performance in our bankruptcy and bankruptcy-related courses to her judicial externship with the Honorable Jerry A. Brown of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana,” said Tulane University Law Professor Rafael Pardo. “Her enormous potential to become a valued member of the bankruptcy bar has not only been recognized by us at Tulane, but others as well.”
In the fall, Emily will join the corporate restructuring practice group at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP in Los Angeles, one of the most well-regarded debtor practices in the country whose high-profile clients include Kmart and U.S Airways.
