What's a good supplement for bankruptcy law? E&E? Understanding Bankruptcy?
Thanks.

From running a forums search, I saw the E&E and Doug Baird Bankruptcy supplement mentioned. I haven't used either though.

The E&E got me an A; between that and just knowing the Code pretty well you should be fine.

If you're using Baird's textbook, use his supplement too. Or, you know, if you're taking it with Baird.

Otherwise, E&E is fine, though I will say that Baird's book is a good overview regardless.

Get the E&E if you're in a bind, but there's just no substitute for knowing the Code

Bump for Fall 2013. My Bankruptcy class is a paper class, and our professor is mostly giving us just a flyover survey of concepts and code sections, without delving that far into the details of each code section, requirements, exceptions, issues of proof, etc. Is the E&E adequate for learning enough of the code to give an accurate contextual backdrop before I get into my paper topic? Or is there another supplement that would be better to use to teach myself enough of the law?

Having this class as a paper class is so strange - with no final, I'm having a hard time learning all the concepts on my own and ticking off all the boxes for each concept.

I would advise buying a code book with commentary after each section and study that alone. Bankruptcy is primarily statute driven, so just put in the hard work and figure out each section. When reading the statutes, try to figure out how they help the primary goals of bankruptcy law. Also, Do two or three petitions from sample facts to get the concepts for eligibility and the means test down.
