Course Description

This survey course is intended not only for aspiring bankruptcy lawyers, but also to allow future litigators and corporate lawyers to become familiar with both consumer and corporate bankruptcy. It examines the nature of the legal relationship between debtors and creditors under the Bankruptcy Code as well as under some nonbankruptcy law. Students develop competency in the competing elections available to consumers in bankruptcy, in both liquidation and reorganization of businesses, in recovery of fraudulent transfers and preferential transfers, and in the jurisdiction and venue bankruptcy courts.
