About the Book


Basic Bankruptcy Law for Paralegals: Abridged 4e evolved from a need to develop a nuts-and-bolts description of the bankruptcy system written in a manner that could be easily understood by nonlawyers. The primary intent has been to design this text as a basic primer for legal assistants or paralegal students to help them grasp the practical aspects of representing debtors or creditors within the bankruptcy system. To meet this challenge, the authors have explained practice and theory together in as concise a format as possible. This Abridged Edition focuses primarily upon consumer bankruptcy since the vast majority of bankruptcy cases are filed as consumer Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 cases.

Professors and students will benefit from:

  • Practice and theory explained together to facilitate understanding concepts and applications.
  • Thread case used throughout the book ties information back to a fact pattern and illustrates how a case proceeds through the bankruptcy process.
  • Up to date forms, dollar amount adjustments, and provisions in the Bankruptcy code.
