Primary Legal Resources

Bankruptcy law is federal law. Bankruptcy law consists primarily of Title 11 of the United States Code and judicial decisions interpreting those statutes. Although there are some regulations concerning the United States Trustees, bankruptcy legal research generally does not involve administrative law.
