In his conference, Professor Pottow discusses how the U.S. Bankruptcy Code works general terms as well as the specific details of its Chapters 7, 9 and 11. He frames his discussion within the constitutional constraints on bankruptcy law. Pottow then goes on to discuss sovereign debt restructurings, how it would apply in the case of Puerto Rico and the lessons that can be taken away from Detroit’s own debt restructuring.
