Bankruptcy

Course Number: 
60801
Professor: 
Michael D. Floyd

The casebook for our course on bankruptcy law will be Elizabeth Warren, Jay Lawrence Westbrook, Katherine Porter, and John A.E. Pottow The Law of Debtors and Creditors: 2013 Casebook Supplement (6th ed. 2013).

You will also need a statute book.  Aspen offers two different statutory supplements, either of which will work fine for this course (and the Secured Transactions course, if you’re also taking that).  The bookstore has ordered Ronald L. Mann et al, ed., Comprehensive Commercial Law: Statutory Supplement (Aspen 2013). (You probably already have this one if you took Payment Systems last fall, and there are probably used copies available.) The other Aspen choice (somewhat less expensive and lighter, but less comprehensive) is Elizabeth Warren et al, ed., Bankruptcy and Article 9: 2013 Statutory Supplement (Aspen 2013).  A 2012 edition of either book should work just fine, and should be readily available used.  Other statute books are available containing the Bankruptcy Code and UCC Article 9; any of those from the past year or two should suffice.  If you have a question about whether a particular statute book will work, I’ll be happy to discuss that with you.

Our first class meeting will be on Monday, January 13, at 1:30 p.m.  For that class, please read and be prepared to discuss Assignment 1 (casebook pages 3-23). 

I look forward to seeing you on January 13.
