This guide is meant to help you find laws and information on bankruptcy issues; the goal is to provide useful (but not exhaustive) resources. Research requires analysis and synthesis of information, and no one resource will likely provide sufficient information or data on any given topic.
Use the tabs at the right while conducting your research to explore:
The Administrative Office of the US Courts has an overview of Bankruptcy Basics, including summaries of the process, the differences between chapters 7, 11, and 13, and a glossary for your review.
For many of the databases in this guide, you will need your Harvard University ID and PIN. For others, you may need to register to gain access. If you have any trouble accessing a database, please contact the library.
Find current news, cases, analysis, and monitoring of bankruptcy topics from these resources.
