    I use this book in teaching a Bankruptcy class to California paralegal students. It is an excellent introduction to the bankruptcy system, and includes discussions of both consumer and business bankruptcies (with a definite emphasis on the consumer side). I expecially appreciate the thorough treatment of the BAPA (laws that changed in October 2005).

    This review is from: Basic Bankruptcy Law for Paralegals, 7th Edition (Paperback)

    I agree that this book is disappointing and not very well organized. It doesn’t do much to clearly explain the process of bankruptcy for the paralegal in practical, usable terms. If anyone knows of a good PRACTICAL book that guides a paralegal through the process of filing a bankruptcy I would love to know about it. I bought this book because it was required for my class and I kept it for future reference in my job, but it pretty much serves as a paperweight on my desk now.
