Bankruptcy is the study of what happens to contractual and other relationships when one of the parties simply cannot fulfill duties established under other areas of the law. Thus the course picks up where other courses leave off. The coverage of the course is broad – examining the problems of individual consumer debtors as well as the problems of insolvent multinational corporations. The course will focus on the United States Bankruptcy Code, but will touch on other areas of debt collection law. Because bankruptcy has become a pervasive part of the legal landscape, the course is important for all practicing attorneys.
