Real Estate Bankruptcies

This course will provide a basic overview of corporate Chapter 11 practice and an in-depth analysis of one of the most common and contentious types of bankruptcy reorganizations - those involving commercial real estate properties such as hotels, office buildings, shopping centers and apartments - and the core plan confirmation issues raised in those cases. Special emphasis will be placed on the strategy that goes into representing the main parties in those cases - debtors, lenders and unsecured creditors - and the role of the bankruptcy judge and counsel for the parties. Leading cases, including recent U.S. Supreme Court and Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals cases argued by the professor, will be analyzed. Evaluation Method: Class Participation and Final Exam Class Materials: Warren, Chapter 11: Reorganizing American Businesses, selected cases, pleadings and documents.
