A concise, pedagogically rich study guide, Inside Bankruptcy Law: What Matters and Why, emphasizes the essential components of the law — how they fit together and why — to give your students the leg up that some of them will need to benefit from their casebook reading and classroom experience.

  • basic coverage of Bankruptcy Law, including brief discussions of state collections law, and all of the major bankruptcy topics
  • the 2005 bankruptcy amendments, along with credit counseling, the means test, changes in exemption laws, additional filing requirements, changes to Chapter 13, and the new small business provisions
    • a rich and dynamic pedagogy, consistently used, including:
      • overviews — what is important in this chapter to an understanding of Property Law
      • key terms — highlighted and defined in contex
      clear signposting — generous use of heading levels and visual aids create a well-marked path to understanding FAQs (frequently asked questions)—anticipate questions, clear up misapprehensions, and test student understanding of material covered Sidebars — study tips, hypos, cites to authorities, and marginalia graphics — charts, graphs, figures, and art connections — a concluding section at the end of every chapter that connects the material just covered to other chapters in the book, the field at large, and legal practice
  • numerous charts that compare and tie together various aspects of bankruptcy law
  • uncluttered and attractive 2-color page design
