This straightforward, student-friendly book combines a popular problems approach with a well-balanced mix of text and cases to build a solid, nuts-and-bolts introduction to the Bankruptcy Code, statutory rules, and issues of bankruptcy law. Its sensible organization allows instructors to tailor coverage to their own approach. The seventh edition benefits from the addition of a new coauthor, Professor Bradley, of the University of Kentucky.

New to the Seventh Edition:

  • For this edition, the text has been completely rewritten, primarily by Professor Bradley, and the focus is now heavily on preparing attorneys for the real world problems they will encounter in a practice that focuses on bankruptcy and other debtor/creditor issues.
  • There is a new chapter covering the new subchapter V of Chapter 11, which was introduced by the Small Business Reorganizations Act and which has proven very popular since it came into force in March of 2020.
  • The book also features an extended treatment of 363 Sales, better reflecting modern practice realities as compared with how other books deal with this topic.

Professors and student will benefit from:

  • This edition has a more textual approach in explaining the difficulties of the law, adding many explanations of how to approach and handle the legal difficulties in this area as they arise.
  • This edition features many straightforward diagrams to help students with different learning styles navigate the sometimes challenging concepts of bankruptcy law.
  • The first chapter of this edition includes a simple but thorough summary of bankruptcy law, which makes it easier for students to place all the future chapters into context.
