    This panel will explore how the Supreme Court of the United States decides cases that raise issues of bankruptcy law. Some have argued that the Court uses these cases to limit the power of bankruptcy judges who are interpreting an unruly and expansive code of law. Others have suggested that the Court uses bankruptcy cases as a low-stakes battlefield on which to develop more general interpretive precedents. In any event, each of the last few terms has seen the court take a handful of bankruptcy cases—some important and tricky, others less so. We will use this panel to explore the individual cases as well as general principles and trends that might be apparent from those cases.
