Notre Dame Law student selected for bankruptcy award

Author: Denise Wager


Dillyn Foy, a rising third-year student at Notre Dame Law School, was recently selected as one of the Distinguished Law Students who will participate in the 2018 Midwest Regional Bankruptcy Seminar.

Foy was nominated by Mark Telloyan and Dan Murray, two adjunct professors at Notre Dame Law School.

“Dillyn was an outstanding student in my class on Corporate Restructuring, demonstrating extraordinary initiative and energy. He has developed an excellent grasp of bankruptcy law,” Murray said.

One example of his initiative is that Foy formed a bankruptcy moot court team, along with last year’s Midwest Regional Bankruptcy Seminar awardee, Charlie Sterrett, and participated in the Duberstein Bankruptcy Moot Court Competition this past spring.

“In addition to his academic accomplishments, Dillyn is also an outstanding individual: fun to talk to, humble, hard-working, incredibly organized. I see bright things in his future,” Telloyan said.

Foy credits Telloyan for his interest in bankruptcy law.

“My interest and experience in bankruptcy originates from Professor Telloyan’s excellent teaching, support, and encouragement with the subject,” Foy said.

Foy will attend the 2018 Midwest Regional Bankruptcy Seminar, sponsored by the American Bankruptcy Institute later this summer in Cincinnati. The seminar will include sessions on key industry issues with bankruptcy judges and professionals.

Four Notre Dame Law Students have received this award in the last six years.
