Consumer Resources Available From ABI

ABI continues to produce high-quality resources with information of value to consumer bankruptcy practitioners. The Nuts and Bolts program conducted by ABI immediately before the Annual Spring Meeting featured presentations on the fundamentals of consumer bankruptcy law. The manual for the program, authored by Tom Yerbich, a Vice Chair of the Consumer Bankruptcy Committee, and entitled Consumer Bankruptcy – Fundamentals of Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, will soon be published by ABI. The manual, which is expected to be out at the end of July, will be available for purchase online.

In addition, Prof. Jack F. Williams of Georgia State University and former ABI scholar-in-residence, and Susan H. Seabury have authored an outstanding review of 2002 consumer bankruptcy cases of significance. The outline, entitled 2002 Year In Review Consumer Bankruptcy Cases, includes 132 pages of digests of significant decisions on issues of interest to consumer bankruptcy practitioners organized by subject matter. The outline is available on the ABI web site.
