For courses in bankruptcy law
Prepare paralegals for career success with a solid foundation in the practice of bankruptcy law.
To prepare bankruptcy paralegals to enter the workforce, Bankruptcy Law and Practice equips readers with solid knowledge of the aspects of substantive bankruptcy law and a firm grasp of its procedural components. Divided into two parts, Part 1 provides the paralegal student with a solid foundation in substantive bankruptcy law. To acquaint the student with the practical aspects of a busy bankruptcy practice, Part 2 addresses topics such as legal ethics, the role of the paralegal, client intake, drafting petitions and other forms, motion practice, and electronic resources. Practical exercises, vignettes, and in-depth case study familiarize the student with the procedures involved in processing a client's bankruptcy matter. The focus is on the paralegal's role throughout the life cycle of a bankruptcy from the initial client interview through the filing of the petition, schedules, and other forms and motions.
