The American Bar Association's new fifth edition of "Bankruptcy Deadline Checklist" is a quick reference guide for anyone who deals with a bankruptcy case including judges, lawyers, paralegals, credit managers, collection agents, professors, law students and others. The book has been updated to incorporate the latest and most relevant code and rule changes.

The "Checklist" is organized by chapter of the Bankruptcy Code (i.e., 1, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, and 15), and, within each chapter, by code section, with additional sections covering those items typically needed upon the filing of a case, rules on adversary proceedings, appeals and notices. Due to the minimal number of Chapter 9 and 12 cases filed, deadlines under those chapters are not included. The book is a convenient resource to help those dealing with bankruptcy cases stay on top of the numerous deadlines. To use the "Checklist," simply look up the relevant code section(s), which appear in numerical order and in the index. Cross-references for applicable rules are provided. code sections or rules in bold designate the primary section or rule containing the relevant deadline. Each deadline has a corresponding space for the insertion of a due date, so that the user may calculate and maintain a master list of deadlines in each case if that is desired.

Purchasers of the "Checklist" will have access to a companion website that is easily downloadable for customization and personalization to the users' needs.
