Consumer Bankruptcy, Third Edition provides practitioners with an integrated explanation of consumer bankruptcy from both debtor and creditor perspectives. It provides invaluable official and procedural forms as well as relevant bankruptcy statutes. Especially useful to New York practitioners is the inclusion of the local bankruptcy rules for all four federal districts. While in the decade since the last edition of this book was published there were few substantive revisions made to federal consumer bankruptcy law, there have been significant changes to the federal procedural rules and forms as well as to certain provisions under New York law applicable to consumer bankruptcy cases.
Consumer Bankruptcy, Third Edition is authored by Susan Jensen who co-authored the first edition of this book with the Hon. Jeremiah E. Berk. Ms. Jensen is senior counsel to the Committee on the Judiciary of the U.S. House of Representatives, where she is primarily responsible for bankruptcy and commercial legislation. Ms. Jensen is also the author of law review articles and has contributed to various treatises on bankruptcy law and practice.
