Course Description
This course explores the Bankruptcy Code's critical role in a credit economy. We will examine this role in a wide array of scenarios, ranging from personal bankruptcies to the failures of large multinational corporations. The course is taught exclusively from problems that are designed to explore the social and economic implications of credit default and forgiveness. Through the problem-based approach, students will explore the Bankruptcy Code with a focus on the transactional and policy implications inherent in bankruptcy law. The course provides some commercial background for these problems. Thus, previous courses in Commercial Law may be beneficial but are not required.
