Course Details

Business Bankruptcy in the United States

This course will examine core concepts of American bankruptcy as they apply to troubled businesses which seek to restructure their finances under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. Topics will include how such cases start, how they are administered (with the help of a statutory stay against creditor action), and how they conclude, either with a court-approved sale of assets or through a court-approved plan of reorganization. In addition, the course will examine the cross-border provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and how United States courts interact with insolvency proceedings pending in other jurisdictions.
