In this practice-oriented program, the faculty will examine the "nuts and bolts" of bankruptcy law and practice. They will 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. They will address 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 in the bankruptcy context.

Topics to be discussed include:
Claims And Claims Administration
Property Of The Estate And The Automatic Stay
Discharge, Plan Confirmation, Conversion And Dismissal
Recovery And Collection Of Assets
Pre-Filing Matters
Ethical Obligations Of Counsel For Debtors And For Creditors "Pigs Get Fat And Hogs Get Slaughtered"
