NOTE: Dates and times for the meetings of creditors will be posted after course begins. The meetings are typically conducted in the morning and early afternoon in downtown Pittsburgh.
Grading will be based primarily on a final examination. One assignment will include a field trip to observe first meetings of creditors and/or bankruptcy court hearings. A written paper of the student's legal analysis based upon observation and research (4 typewritten, double spaced pages) will be required and will count as 10% of the grade. Class participation is an important part of this course and will constitute 10% of the final grade. In addition, if homework assignments and quizzes are given, they too will count toward the final grade in percentages to be determined based upon the assignment or quiz.
Students are required to take Secured Transactions before or in the same semester as Bankruptcy.
