This book covers bankruptcy law, policy, and practice, focusing on consumer bankruptcy and the basics of business bankruptcy. Its innovative organization and integrated use of graphics introduce students to the variety of often competing policies that apply when an individual or business entity experiences financial distress. The book’s 101 carefully-designed problems facilitate learning and focus class discussion. Review questions at the end of most chapters facilitate student self-assessment of their understanding and mastery of the law material and its application.
