In this class, you will learn how to negotiate and litigate using the leverage created by the Bankruptcy Code. You will understand the roles, rights, and responsibilities of debtors, secured creditors, unsecured creditors, advisors, trustees, committees and bankruptcy courts. You will appreciate the differences among Ch. 11 business reorganizations, Ch. 13 consumer rehabilitations, and Ch. 7 liquidations.
