Practical Bankruptcy Law for Paralegals is an excellent tool for learning the fundamentals of bankruptcy for paralegals. More than simply a textbook, each topic is fully developed to the extent necessary for effective use by a beginning legal assistant, yet discussions are of sufficient sophistication to keep the attention of the experienced professional. The text follows a five-level approach to teaching bankruptcy law. It moves from an overview of the substantive law of bankruptcy to insights into the law and written and unwritten rules of procedure that guide and often control how the law is implemented. The material skillfully guides the student through the procedural labyrinth of bankruptcy practice with timelines, checklists and analysis aids then presents exercises for hands-on experience in performing bankruptcy tasks that are common in actual practice. Each chapter concludes with a set of questions and answers and drafting projects intended for the student to research and answer. The text also includes the Bankruptcy Code and Rules, as well as references to relevant software and Web sites, making it a continuing resource for the assistant once in a professional setting.
