Commercial Law: Bankruptcy

Course Description
The principal objective of this course is an in-depth analysis of the Bankruptcy Code. The course will examine to varying degrees the structure and process of both consumer and business bankruptcy proceedings.  Special emphasis will be placed on protection of the insolvent debtor, the discharge of debts, the constituents of a bankruptcy estate, the allowance of and priorities among claims, the treatment of executory contracts, and the avoidance of transfers.  The interaction between bankruptcy law and nonbankruptcy law will be considered, and attention will be devoted throughout the course to the competing goals of debtors and creditors that underlie the bankruptcy system.  (3 credits)
