NAAG Counsel Publications and Speaking Engagements
NAAG Bankruptcy Counsel Karen Cordry’s article, "It's Time for Real Uniformity: The Need for a Nationwide Chapter 13 Plan," from the April 2011 issue of the ABI Journal, was selected for inclusion in American Bankruptcy Institute’s (ABI) newest book, Best of ABI 2011: The Year in Consumer Bankruptcy.
Judy McKee, program manager for NAAG’s National Attorneys General Training & Research Institute, was a speaker on combating human trafficking at a Jan. 4 Institute of Medicine (IOM) meeting. The presentation was on NAAG President and Washington Attorney General Rob McKenna's Pillars of Hope presidential initiative, especially as it applies to domestic child sexual exploitation and sex trafficking. The U.S. Department of Justice has requested that the IOM study current approaches to addressing these issues -- both the causes and the consequences -- at the local, state, and federal levels and make recommendations to inform future policy and practices within law enforcement, human services, and health care agencies.
