In 2005, Chapter 15 was added to the U.S. Bankruptcy
Code. Its express purpose is to "provide effective mechanisms for dealing
with insolvency cases involving debtors, assets, claimants, and other parties
of interest involving more than one country." It is such a complicated and evolving area of the law that this course is presented in
two parts by two Circuits!
Part I (5th Circuit): Identifying and Resolving the Tough Issues
This presentation explores the history
of Chapter 15: why it came to be, its importance and role, when you might
encounter it, and its limits. Through storytelling, learners will gain an
understanding of the provision's scope and the ethical oddities that occur when
U.S. law meets a foreign jurisdiction.

Part II (11th Circuit): Location, Location, Location
This presentation is a deep-dive into the complicated aspects of inbound insolvency cases,
foreign governments, U.S. assets, global citizens and fraud cases. Learners
receive insights into the logistics of Chapter 15 such as dealing with
witnesses, defendants, and process servers.
