Together, the four co-authors have taught bankruptcy courses at more than 20 very different law schools; one of them sat as a bankruptcy judge for nine years; and all four have substantial practice experience. Drawing on their diverse experience, they have prepared original text, problems, and edited cases with three goals in mind: (1) introduce students to one new bankruptcy concept at a time, (2) show students the connection among the various concepts and (3) give the students a sense of how these bankruptcy concepts are utilized in both the smallest personal and largest business bankruptcy cases.

Bankruptcy Law: Principles, Policies, and Practice, Fourth Edition puts bankruptcy law in context, illuminating the evolution of the Bankruptcy Code with an exploration of current and historical non-bankruptcy remedies. The book continually approaches each topic through the goals of creditors and debtors, exploring how each is served in various parts of the Code. Extensive questions and numerous problems focus student attention on the mechanics of the bankruptcy process. But they do so through the lens of history and policy, and they explain why the law is the way it is. The authors' aim in designing the casebook was to provide a very accessible medium for introducing students to bankruptcy law in a sophisticated manner. As the title indicates, the emphasis is on the relationship between the core principles essential to an understanding of the law, the policies animating those principles, and the challenges presented by the effectuation of those principles and policies in bankruptcy practice. In its methodology, Bankruptcy Law: Principles, Policies, and Practice relies on a variety of expository tools—textual discussion, comprehension questions, problems, cases and thought / discussion questions—all with a careful eye toward building upon previous materials and concepts. The eBook versions of this title feature links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.
