The Law of Debtors and Creditors

Book Overview
The Law of Debtors and Creditors is a new case book for a three-unit law school course focusing on the basic principles of American debtor-creditor law. The book focuses on the law of execution on money judgments, using New York law as a paradigm. It also thoroughly covers fraudulent conveyance law, as it exists under state law and under bankruptcy in general. The book also explores the basic principles of chapter 7 liquidation, as well as a thorough review of the avoidance powers granted to a bankruptcy trustee under the Bankruptcy Code. Excluded from this volume is coverage of issues unique to consumer bankruptcy, on which the author has published a separate case book with Vandeplas Publishing, LLC. About the author: David Gray Carlson is Professor of Law at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of law. He is the author of a treatise on secured credit in bankruptcy and of over sixty law review articles on various aspects of bankruptcy and debtor-creditor law. Many of these articles have involved procedural and constitutional issues connected with the enforcement of money judgments obtained in state and federal courts and issues involving fraudulent conveyance and voidable preference law, all of which are implicated in the current volume. He has taught a basic debtor-creditor course for over 25 years. Besides teaching at Cardozo Law School, Carlson has taught at the George Washington School of Law, the, University of Miami Law School, the University of Michigan Law School, Washington & Lee School of Law, and the Interdisciplinary Institute at Herzlya, Israel.
