- Print Book
Bankruptcy and the Supreme Court is a landmark work that examines all of the U.S. Supreme Court?s bankruptcy decisions since 1898. This comprehensive bankruptcy law reference book is the product of more than seven years of effort by Professor Kenneth N. Klee, of the University of California, Los Angeles, and was sponsored by the American College of Bankruptcy and the American College of Bankruptcy Foundation.
Anyone with involvement in bankruptcy practice should consult this work to gain deeper appreciation of the development of bankruptcy law and to understand bankruptcy in the wider context of Supreme Court practice and jurisprudence.
The work analyzes the Supreme Court's approach to bankruptcy law from six perspectives:
• Chapter 1 looks at the Court as a governmental and political institution.
• Chapter 2 considers how the Court resolves conflicts between bankruptcy law and other areas of state and federal law.
• Chapter 3 discusses the constitutional aspects of bankruptcy law.
• Chapter 4 examines the Court's treatment of the bankruptcy court as a judicial institution.
• Chapter 5 offers a detailed analysis of specific bankruptcy doctrines and policies.
• Chapter 6 addresses some of the bankruptcy cases over the past 111 years in which the Court has sharply changed the course of bankruptcy law; it also includes cases that are the author's personal favorites.
Also included are thorough tables of cases and authorities and a detailed index.
