The Law of Bankruptcy: A Text for Business Men and Students of Business, with Copies of the National Bankruptcy ACT, General Orders of the Supreme Court and the Official Forms, with Problems (Classic Reprint) by Charles W Gerstenberg (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from The Law of Bankruptcy: A Text for Business Men and Students of Business, With Copies of the National Bankruptcy Act, General Orders of the Supreme Court and the Official Forms, With Problems In the last five years there have been over 84,000 bankrupts in the United States, with liabilities approaching a billion and a half dollars. Certainly every well-informed business man ought to kw something about the way in which bankrupt estates are administered and about the rights, duties and liabilities of bankrupts and creditors. Indeed, the credit men's associations have been urging business men to participate in the administration of bankrupt estates as receivers and as trustees; probably unfamiliarity with the law has been the chief cause of the business man's reticence. There can be little doubt that the business man who would undertake this work would have more difficulty in learning the essential parts of the law than the lawyer has in learning about the important parts of a business. Unfortunately for the business man, there has been text on bankruptcy intended chiefly for the layman. Such texts as have appeared contain too much of the technical and procedural to appeal to the average business man. To supply this deficiency is the purpose of this book. It is intended t only for business men but for advanced students in university courses in commerce. A special feature is the group of problems taken from cases adjudicated by American courts. These problems illustrate all phases of the law except those that deal with matters of procedure which are of interest only to the lawyer. Part I is the text to be studied.
