Zach Smith and Alan Pope Teaching New Restructuring Course at Duke Law

Speaking Engagements

Moore & Van Allen Member and Head of Bankruptcy & Restructuring practice Zach Smith, and Member Alan Pope, will be co-teaching a new course at Duke Law this fall semester titled “Corporate Restructuring and Chapter 11 Bankruptcy – In Practice”.

This experiential learning course is designed to expose students to the practical, “on-the-ground,” and “real world” skills needed to advise clients in complex and fast-paced corporate restructuring and Chapter 11 business reorganization matters, and to develop an introductory working knowledge of key issues and topics often presented in modern-day restructuring practice. The course will involve several substantive lectures, thoughtfully selected reading assignments to be discussed in depth during class sessions, simulations in which students take on different role-play exercises involving a distressed company and its stakeholders, preparation of written strategy memoranda as part of the simulation exercises, and guidance and constructive feedback from Zach, Alan, and prominent guest speakers.
