Bankruptcy Law in Context provides a fresh approach to the study of bankruptcy law through the illustration of bankruptcy issues in typical required doctrinal courses. Students learn the bankruptcy concepts by studying them in the context of materials they already mastered as part of their required law school curriculum. In addition, this title allows for a bankruptcy course to be taught as a capstone, providing a good summary and review of these foundational topics in the context of a body of law that frequently intersects with other areas of law.

Key Features:

  • An overview of fundamental doctrinal courses
  • Problems at end of each chapter that build upon each other throughout the book
  • Treatment of fundamental bankruptcy concepts within the context of other areas of law

Professors and students will benefit from:

  • A unique approach, that focuses not just on the bankruptcy code but on its interaction with other areas of the law.
    • This appeals not only to students interested in bankruptcy practice, but also to students seeking a way to connect the law school curriculum or to review previously learned areas of law in preparation for the bar examination and practice
  • A review of core doctrinal concepts
  • An understanding of basic bankruptcy concepts
  • Discussion of statutory interpretations throughout book
  • Concluding problems to each chapter that bring together concepts
