The eBook edition of Collier comprises full analysis of the Bankruptcy Code and Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure (volumes 1 through 10 in the print edition). This benchmark resource is now in its Sixteenth Edition. With their work on the new edition, the editors and authors have built upon a 100-year-old legacy and have created a practical and timely resource that is tailored for today's busiest lawyers.
Collier eBook is organized as follows:
Overview; Jurisdiction; Appeals; etc.: The Sixteenth Edition carries forward the tradition of the previous edition and collects those topics that are not tied to a particular Code section. These introductory chapters encompass all of the material on the bankruptcy court system, jurisdiction, venue, appeals, the U.S. trustee system, bankruptcy crimes, professional responsibility, fees and mediation. In addition, Chapter 10 focuses on suits against trustees and debtors in possession without leave of the bankruptcy court and the duty to comply with state law and to pay taxes. Also included are an entirely new overview of the Bankruptcy Code (Chapter 1), a chapter describing liquidations of broker-dealers under the Securities Investor Protection Act of 1970 (Chapter 12) and a thorough treatment of the history of bankruptcy legislation (Chapter 20).
Analysis of the Bankruptcy Code: Each section of the Bankruptcy Code (11 U.S.C. ?? 101-1532) is covered in its own chapter, with chapter numbers keyed sequentially to Code section numbers. Each chapter contains a discussion of the current law governing the applicable Code provision along with its history and derivation.
Analysis of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure: Each Bankruptcy Rule (Fed. R. Bankr. P. 1001-9034) is analyzed in a separate chapter, again, with chapter numbers keyed sequentially to rules numbers. The analysis includes the derivation of the rule covered, along with all Advisory Committee Notes.
