The American College of Bankruptcy (ACB) has selected Dan Centner, a third year law student at Tulane Law School, as the Fifth Circuit Distinguished Student for 2008.
“We are delighted Mr. Centner has been honored with this award. It is richly deserved,” says Tulane law professor Mark Wessman. “We join Mr. Centner in thanking the American College of Bankruptcy for its distinguished work and for this opportunity.”
Centner was nominated by Tulane Law School and chosen among nominees from other law schools in Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi for his demonstrated talent and interest in bankruptcy law. The Education Committee will honor Distinguished Bankruptcy Law students from the Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Tenth circuits at a March 2008 reception in Washington, D.C.
At the College Education Committee’s request, the ACB began the program which now identifies and honors students like Centner by inviting them to attend the College’s Induction Ceremony – a prestigious black tie event held every spring at the United States Supreme Court Great Hall. Well known individuals who have addressed the Induction Ceremony include Supreme Court Justices, members of Congress, Department of Justice officials, White House staff members, academicians and appellate judges.
The College Regents and their Circuit Councils are asked to contact and work with the law schools within their respective circuits to select the students. They will also be asked to provide mentors for the students who are chosen. The mentors will be responsible to assure that the students are fully involved in the Annual Meeting activities and meet other Fellows.
