    Grading

    Grading will be based primarily on a final examination. However, class participation, homework assignments and quizzes will count toward the final grade. One assignment will include a field trip to observe first meetings of creditors. A written paper of the student's observations and legal analysis (4 typewritten, double spaced pages) will be required and will count as 10% of the grade.
