Bankruptcy is an important component of commercial and business law that blends transactional and litigation practice, and requires lawyers with strong drafting, negotiating, and oral advocacy skills. This course is a general introduction to bankruptcy practice and procedures with principal emphasis on commercial reorganizations and liquidations under Chapter 11 and Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code. Special focus will be on the dynamics between and among various stakeholders and current issues in a “modern” business bankruptcy. The course will consist of lectures and discussions of problems and contemporary case studies designed to examine the law and policy of commercial bankruptcy, the powers and authority of bankruptcy courts and various practical and ethical issues.
