Bankruptcy E&E Any Good?

Postby Alea Iacta Est » Sun Feb 21, 2010 7:56 pm

Class is only corporate bankruptcy, no consumer bankruptcy.
I prefer having hypos with answers to work through, so would prefer E&E or similar format if it's good.

I used it for a few concepts and thought it was pretty good.

I wouldn't waste too much money on the book. There are plenty of treatises on westlaw that are just as good and also current (E&E doesn't have the 2005 amendments but it wouldn't be much of an issue for chapter 11).

^True for explaining materials, but if the OP is looking for hypos, I think the E&E is decent (although basic, as with all its hypos).

E&E is NOT worthwhile a purchase for a class that focuses ch. 11 corporate reorganizations. There is a teeny chapter devoted to ch. 11 (with no practice problems). This did help me understand the cramdown concept a little, but it wasn't worth buying the book.

I should clarify that the class doesn't just focus on Ch. 11 -- general bankruptcy concepts like the automatic stay, relief from the stay, contract assumption and rejection, etc. are also covered. Does this change anyone's answer?

You sure? If I remember correctly, my copy had multiple chapters focusing on ch. 11...... Now that I think about it, I may be talking about the glannon guide. I just can't remember anymore. FWIW, I do remember that the glannon guide was updated for the BACPA.

Hmm.. I used the latest edition of E&E, and it only had one chapter on ch. 11. Maybe the glannon guide does a better job here? Oh well.

Oh okay.. there are other chapters in the book that talk about some of those general bankruptcy concepts like the automatic stay (mostly using hypos focused on ch. 7). To be honest, I didn't really go delve into those chapters too deeply (because those weren't the primary areas that I was struggling with). Also, I don't remember seeing much related to executory contract assumption/rejection (maybe it did, and I missed it). The book does tend to be a little focused on the bankruptcy of individuals, in my opinion..
