Bankruptcy is an area of law that has provided significant employment for paralegals. This course will examine the debtor-creditor relationship and the difference between voluntary and involuntary bankruptcy, both under Chapter 7 (liquidation) and 11 (reorganization). You will study the Bankruptcy Code in depth and learn how to prepare the most important bankruptcy forms.
You will be introduced to the complexities of bankruptcy law and be trained to work as a bankruptcy paralegal. The course will also provide paralegals, working for attorneys who specialize in other areas of law, with the knowledge they may need to assist their attorney with clients who receive notice of a bankruptcy. Coursework is equivalent to 45 clock hours of study.
