Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
Description This course examines the general nature of the legal relationship between debtors and creditors under nonbankruptcy law as well as under the bankruptcy code. It is intended to serve either as an initial introductory course supporting subsequent detailed study of bankruptcy procedures and strategies or as a general basis for advising clients wishing to avoid detrimental impacts of bankruptcy filings. Subjects covered include debt collection procedures under state law, the purposes of bankruptcy, liquidation under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code, individual debt adjustment under Chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Code, business reorganization under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, recovery of fraudulent transfers and preferential transfers, and the jurisdiction of the bankruptcy courts. Bankruptcy is an extraordinarily rewarding area of practice. Even in large cities, the bankruptcy bar is a small subset of the legal community with a strong sense of collegiality, shared expertise and their own specialized courts. Bankruptcy practitioners enjoy a pleasant mix of litigation and transactional practice centered around a unified code which takes years of effort to fully master. The course is taught through consideration of case opinions and solution of client-focused problems. The course grade is based on a three hour essay-type examination. Familiarity with secured transactions under Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code will be beneficial to students taking this course but is not a prerequisite. The course is excellent preparation for Course B631 Business Reorganization, but is not a prerequisite for that course.
