Course Details

Advanced Bankruptcy

This course will take a detailed look at major corporate reorganizations under the federal Bankruptcy Code through simulations and problem solving. The examination will begin with the intial skirmishes present in almost all cases: creditors demanding relief from the automatic stay, protection of their cash collateral, and debtor in possession financing. It will then review asset sales that can only occur in bankruptcy, and plans of reorganization under which creditors rights are modified or eliminated. Some examination of bankruptcy jurisdiction and the effects and law of cross-border bankruptcy will be investigated. Classes will consist of a combination of discussion and problem solving through simulations of parts of reorganization cases. Grading will be based on class participation in problem solving and simulations, and upon a final exam. The introductory class in Bankruptcy (BUSCOM 665), or equivalent, is required. Business Associations and Secured Transactions, or equivalent, are recommended. Course materials will be provided by the instructor. Pre-requisite: Bankruptcy BUSCOM 665 or equivalent is required
