Bankruptcy 101 Series - Session 10 - Federal vs State - which law controls? What do I do now?


Special Appearance by Judge Collins!

Bankruptcy 101 Series - Session 10

Do I really need a program to learn how to practice bankruptcy law?

I thought it was just filling out a bunch of forms!

Which Law Controls – State or Federal?

Presented by Michael Thrall

Michael’s discussion will focus on important state law issues and their impact on bankruptcy.  For example, Michael will discuss, among other things, Arizona’s anti-deficiency statute, liens (or lack thereof) on homesteads in Arizona, state laws that trustees can enforce, and timely perfection of vehicle liens. The goal of this presentation is to give practitioners key pieces of state law to apply to most, if not all, consumer cases.
