The Function of Bankruptcy Laws in our Society
Developed by Susan Cabral
The purpose of this assignment is to have students reflect on the function of bankruptcy laws in our society and determine whether selected provisions of the Bankruptcy Code serve or frustrate this function. The questions are designed to raise moral and ethical issues as well as issues of social utility. I hope to engage students at the high end of Bloom’s taxonomy of learning scale. Students are asked to read "profiles" of people who are filing for bankruptcy as a concrete starting point for their reflections.
