The comprehensive text provides an exhaustive analysis and discussion of every aspect of bankruptcy law, including an overview of bankruptcy; invoking bankruptcy relief (with a very detailed explanation of the means test); the automatic stay; jurisdiction and procedure; property of the estate; trustee's avoiding powers; payment of claims; executory contracts and unexpired leases; exemptions; discharge; reorganization under Chapter 11; debt adjustments under Chapter 13; debt adjustments under Chapter 12; and cross-border cases under Chapter 15. The 2005 BAPCPA amendments and the extensive case law thereunder are explained and critiqued. All legislation through the spring of 2020 is discussed, including the 2019 SBRA and the 2020 CARES Act. All relevant Supreme Court cases through the 2020 Term are discussed in depth.


Tabb is the Mildred Van Voorhis Jones Chair in Law and has taught at Illinois since 1984. He is considered one of the nation’s leading bankruptcy scholars, specializing in bankruptcy, contracts and commercial law. At Foley, Tabb’s practice concentrates on commercial and international bankruptcy and insolvency matters, creditors’ rights and out-of-court workouts and restructurings.
