TMA New Jersey Wins 2016 – 2017 Most Innovative Program for Partnerships Award

Chapter Award WinnerTMA New Jersey for Inaugural Hon. Rosemary Gambardella Scholarship Competition: 2016 – 2017 Most Innovative Program for Partnerships
In fall 2016, TMA New Jersey partnered with Rutgers Law School to launch the inaugural Hon. Rosemary Gambardella Scholarship Competition. The chapter’s TMA NOW and TMA NextGen committees worked together to create the competition.  

Students were presented with a case study, had to identify potential bankruptcy issues, draft a motion, and those who made it to round three presented their case in front of a panel of judges at the Rutgers Center for Law and Justice. 

Students gained hands-on experience, grappled with real-life bankruptcy issues, and were introduced to seasoned practitioners in their field. The success of the 2016 competition has ensured it will become an annual component of TMA New Jersey Chapter initiatives. 

Because of the event’s success, six new members joined TMA New Jersey in addition to complimentary memberships being given to participating students and Rutgers professors. This competition will help educate and prepare future restructuring professionals. The chapter received this award specifically for the innovative partnership that was created.
