(1 cr.) This course assists students in making the transition from law school to practice in a business setting. Using their knowledge of bankruptcy law, students write memos; participate in mock client-counseling, negotiation and advocacy exercises; and comment on each other's work. In addition to bankruptcy law, course material and presentations emphasize business concepts, including financial literacy and rehabilitation of small to mid-sized troubled businesses. Although the course focuses specifically on insolvency, the practice skills emphasized, such as understanding the business contexts in which legal problems can arise, are also required for success in other business settings. Prerequisite: Concurrent or prior enrollment in Bankruptcy 396 *01.
