    Additional Info

    NOTE: Dates and times for the meetings of creditors will be posted after course begins. The meetings are conducted in the morning and early afternoon in downtown Pittsburgh.


    Grading will be based primarily on a final examination. One assignment will include a field trip to observe first meetings of creditors. A written paper of the student's legal analysis based upon observation and research (4 typewritten, double spaced pages) will be required and will count as 10% of the grade. Class participation is an important part of this course and will constitute 10% of the final grade. In addition, if homework assignments and quizzes are given, they too will count toward the final grade in percentages to be determined based upon the assignment or quiz.
