Principles of Bankruptcy Law

David G. Epstein, University of Richmond

Co-authored with Steve H. Nickles.


We have written the book with the primary objective of making your grade on your bankruptcy/ creditors rights test, your best grade in law school. Regardless of how your professor teaches or how she tests, all that you need to understand is (1) a handful of basic bankruptcy concepts (2) the relationship among these basic bankruptcy concepts (3) what legal issues can arise in a business bankruptcy case and what legal issues can arise In a consumer bankruptcy case and (4) how the basic bankruptcy concepts affect these legal issues. This short book, unlike "our" three-volume bankruptcy treatise, does not cover all of bankruptcy law. We just cover all of the bankruptcy law that your exam is going to cover.
