Bankruptcy Practice: The Basics (2011)
A greater numbers of attorneys are finding the need to learn or to
re-learn how to service bankruptcy law clients while not violating the
regulations on lawyering of the Bankruptcy “Reform” Act,
which became effective in October 2005. In this practice-oriented
program, the faculty examines the “nuts and bolts” of
bankruptcy law and practice. The speakers discuss substantive issues
such as property of the estate, discharge and dischargeability of debts,
the automatic stay, executory contracts and leases, and voidable
transfers of property that most commonly arise in bankruptcy cases. At
the same time, they will discuss Chapter 7 and Chapter 13, the means
test, and consumer oriented issues that face lawyers. You will learn how
to commence a case as well as the ethical obligations of counsel for
debtors and their creditors in the bankruptcy context.
