Course Description:

NOTE: This section of Bankruptcy is part of the Law School’s Law & Business Program. It has approximately the same substantive coverage as other Bankruptcy sections, but assumes knowledge of accounting and finance.

This course concerns corporate bankruptcy and reorganization, and focuses on the reorganization of financially distressed firms under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. Compared to traditional bankruptcy courses, the emphasis of the readings and class discussion is less on bankruptcy case law and more on the economic fundamentals of financial deal-making and restructuring. Students enrolled in the course are expected to participate actively in class discussion. They should also be comfortable with the basic skills involved in reading financial statements and performing valuations of financial assets.
