The recent surge in home foreclosures is one of several topics to be discussed at Stetson University College of Law’s 33rd Annual Alexander L. Paskay Seminar on Bankruptcy Law and Practice on Dec. 5-6 in Tampa, Fla. The annual seminar for bankruptcy experts is moving to the Sheraton Tampa River Walk at 200 N. Ashley Dr.
