An introduction to the concept and law of property; acquisition of property; estates in land; private and public land use controls; real estate transactions and landlord-tenant relationships.
BANKRUPTCY (3 units)
This course provides students with a comprehensive review of U.S. Bankruptcy law.  The course is designed to provide students with a complete theoretical understanding of bankruptcy law, as well as a practical understanding of the administration of actual bankruptcy cases.  The course commences with a brief survey of creditors' remedies under state law (attachment and judgment liens, assignments for the benefit of creditors, composition and extension agreements).  The bulk of the course is devoted to the analysis and application of the Bankruptcy Code.
This course is a "hands-on" practicum course, focusing on the many aspects of forming, operating and dissolving small business enterprises.  Students are required to draft documents, advise clients, and make strategic decisions.  Materials for the course are photocopied from statutes, regulations, practice treatises, case reporters and form books.  Some attention is devoted to tax and bankruptcy aspects of enterprise formation and termination.  The focus of the course will be on the modest business enterprise, and course exercises will be oriented towards the small law firm practitioner.  For purposes of making the course realistic, there will be a heavy reliance on California law (which is representative of modern corporations codes in may states).

Full course descriptions are available in PDF format on the J.D. Curriculum page.
