Business Bankruptcy

Law 463



Writing Experience (WE)



Business bankruptcy is a transition-to-practice writing and experiential course designed for students who have taken the basic bankruptcy course and would like to continue studying business bankruptcy in a more applied context. Students will have the opportunity to learn more about the litigation and transactional aspects of business bankruptcy, to participate in simulation exercises, and to get feedback on drafting short writings such as client letters, motions, or draft orders. Some interaction with bankruptcy judges or other professionals is anticipated.

I note above that laptops are not permitted (this is not a heavy note-taking class experience), but there will be exceptions to this when the nature of the work you are doing in class requires group drafting or other tasks for which a laptop of course would be appropriate.

Bankruptcy, secured transactions

The basic bankruptcy course (with either Professor Jacoby or Professor Gibson) is a firm prerequisite for this class. If you have transferred from another school and taken bankruptcy elsewhere, please see me to make sure your class satisfies the prerequisite.
