Paralegals are in high demand in the field of debtor-creditor law. This course acquaints the student with the three most common forms of bankruptcy: Chapters 7, 11, and 13. The student learns the law of bankruptcy and develops practical experience becoming familiar with documents commonly used in bankruptcy practice. Students learn about the valuable role of paralegal professionals in a successful bankruptcy practice.
This course includes a thorough review of the new bankruptcy laws, which came into effect in 2005. Changes include a requirement that the debtor have counseling before they can file a bankruptcy case, and a "means test" now requires all debtors to meet a more rigorous income and asset standard before being qualified to file. The new law also imposes new requirements on lawyers, and by extension, the paralegals who do most of the bankruptcy work. These changes, and others, are reviewed in this course.
