Real Estate Bankruptcies

This course will provide 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 a recent U.S. Supreme Court case argued by the professor, will be analyzed. Evaluation Method: Class Participation and Final Exam Class Materials: U.S. Bankruptcy Code and Rules; selected cases, articles, pleadings and documents
