History of the College

The American College of Commercial Finance Lawyers was founded a quarter century ago, through the foresight, insight and perseverance of our co-founders Maury Poscover, David Willenzik and Earnest Bland Williams III.  Over the succeeding years, this College has inducted nearly 300 preeminent practitioners and scholars as Fellows and has firmly established itself not only as a prominent honorary society of remarkable collegiality, but importantly also as a learned, active and influential participant in the field of commercial finance law.  And now, through the labors and invaluable recollections of many, the history of the College has now been written and is available for your enjoyment.  Please click here to read the History of the American College of Commercial Finance Lawyers online or to download a copy.
