LLM855 Corporate Insolvency Law and Bankruptcy

[3–0, 3 cr.]

This course introduces students to the law of bankruptcy and corporate insolvency. While understanding legal terminology, concepts, doctrine and processes are all vital to grasping and applying bankruptcy and insolvency laws, the course also seeks to frame those aspects in a wider historical, social, economic and policy context. The course begins with an overview of debtor-creditor relations and the pre-insolvency context, and then addresses insolvencies and various forms of corporate reorganizations and restructurings
