This Article reflects on the lessons learned and taught by one of Judge Barry Schermer’s co-teachers. Woolverton focuses on teaching the fundamentals of Chapter 13 bankruptcy, including confirming a plan, secured claims, and interest charged, and, along with Judge Schermer, has students apply these complicated concepts to hypothetical situations. The Author recognizes Judge Schermer’s ability to break down these topics in a way that makes them more understandable to a new generation of students and practitioners.
