Compelling problems are introduced with straightforward explanations and cases, making the concepts easy to teach. A modular structure allows for tremendous flexibility in course design, and through its organization around assignment units, instructors can easily prepare work for their students. This problem-based casebook presents a thorough review of the intersection of secured transactions and bankruptcy and is accompanied by a comprehensive Teachers Manual.
