The course explores the balance reached under the Bankruptcy Code between protecting the rights and expectations of creditors and the rights of debtors seeking a financial fresh start through a discharge or restructuring of debts. Creditor remedies under state law and basic commercial law concepts relating to security interests under Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code are covered briefly.
