All About Bankruptcy: A Primer for Non-Bankruptcy Lawyers
Non-bankruptcy litigators will learn the basics of bankruptcy law. Panelists will provide helpful tips and strategies for dealing with bankruptcy-related issues that arise in a general litigation practice. This webinar will provide an overview of the Bankruptcy Code and the types of bankruptcies that are available. Panelists will discuss the types of information found in bankruptcy pleadings and how that information might be useful in non-bankruptcy litigation.
