Practical Bankruptcy Law
Providing the building blocks of bankruptcy law by explaining bankruptcy cases from the perspective of the debtor, the trustee, and the creditor, the Practical Bankruptcy Law course provides the education needed for specialized positions with law firms dealing in bankruptcy cases. Learn the rules and procedures that must be followed in each type of case; how cases are commenced, converted, dismissed, and closed. The e-text included in this course covers all the basic, underlying concepts of bankruptcy law and the procedural rules governing bankruptcy cases. Each topic discussed within the text is clear and easy to grasp, even if you are a beginning paralegal, yet there’s enough depth to advance your knowledge if you’re already an experienced paralegal.
Blackstone advanced paralegal courses are each worth 20 hours towards the 50 hours of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) needed for recertification if you are a Certified Legal Assistant (CLA) through the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA). Our coursework also qualifies as CLE credit for the five-year PLS and PP recertification through NALS…the association for legal professionals. With Blackstone’s advanced paralegal courses, you have the freedom and flexibility to take the courses you need to renew your certification and to advance you knowledge with specialized legal skills.
