BASIC BANKRUPTCY LAW FOR PARALEGALS, ABRIDGED (P)

$234.75
$176.00
$176.00 - $234.75

Basic Bankruptcy Law for Paralegals, Abridged Edition evolved from a need to develop a nuts-and-bolts description of the bankruptcy system written in a manner that could be easily understood by nonlawyers. The primary intent has been to design this text as a basic primer for legal assistants or paralegal students to help them grasp the practical aspects of representing debtors or creditors within the bankruptcy system. To meet this challenge, the authors have explained practice and theory together in as concise a format as possible. This Abridged Edition focuses primarily upon consumer bankruptcy since the vast majority of bankruptcy cases are filed as consumer Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 cases.
