LAW 248 - Business Bankruptcy

Law 248, Business Bankruptcy, will meet four hours per week, will be taught in the traditional law school discussion format and graded by a four hour multiple choice final exam and an evaluation of class participation. Although I demand a lot in this course, you will benefit from it greatly even if you never expect to practice bankruptcy law.

This course examines the United States Bankruptcy Code and the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure. Areas of emphasis are: financing, operating and administering debtors’ estates; treatment of executory contracts and leases; formulation and confirmation of plans of reorganization; and the avoiding powers of the trustee in bankruptcy. The focus of the course will be business bankruptcies, and little or no attention will be given to the treatment of the consumer debtor.
