Corporate Reorganization and Restructuring

This is a course about corporation reorganizations under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. Unlike the typical Bankruptcy course, the emphasis will not be on mastering all of the intricacies of the Code, though to be sure students will be required to learn and understand key Code provisions and apply them to fact patterns. Rather, the course will approach corporate reorganization in a manner that considers not only legal rules, but also the important issues of financing that arise when a firm is in distress. In this way, the course should be useful to any student who intends to advise corporate clients on financial transactions and deal structuring, as well as to students who intend to work primarily as bankruptcy practitioners.
