Special Edition -- The New Bankruptcy Code plus the revised Interim Bankruptcy Rules in black line format!

Complete U.S. Bankruptcy Code (U.S. Code, Title 11) and related provisions in Titles 18 & 28, as amended by the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109-8), plus the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, as amended by the revised Interim Bankruptcy Rules and the new national rule changes effective Dec. 1, 2005.

Contents:
On April 20, 2005, the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 ("the Reform Act"), was signed into law by President Bush as Public Law No. 109-8. This black line edition is intended to show how the Reform Act has affected Title 11 (Bankruptcy Code) as well as selected provisions in Title 18 (Crimes and Criminal Procedure) and Title 28 (Judiciary and Judicial Procedure).

Insertions effected by the Reform Act are identified by underline; deletions are identified by strike through. A citation to the applicable section(s) of the Reform Act follows each affected code section appearing herein. The code sections set forth herein are current through December 7, 2005 (Public Law 109-127).

The Reform Act provides that, as a general rule, it shall not apply to cases commenced under Title 11 prior to 180 days after the date of enactment (i.e., October 17, 2005). However, the Act also sets forth a number of exceptions. This publication contains a comprehensive table summarizing each exception.

On December 1, 2005, amendments to the following Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure took effective: Bankruptcy Rules 1007, 2002, 3004, 3005, 7004, 9001, 9006 and 9036. The Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure set forth in this publication reflect these amendments.

On August 22, 2005, the Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure approved Interim Bankruptcy Rules for adoption by the local bankruptcy courts. The Interim Rules are designed to implement the substantive and procedural changes mandated by the Reform Act until national rules are adopted, which is not anticipated until December 1, 2008. On October 4, 2005, the Committee approved revisions to the Interim Rules. The Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure set forth in this publication reflect, in black line format, the changes effected by the revised Interim Rules.

Key Benefits:
The Black Line shows each change to the Bankruptcy Code effected by the Reform Act and each change to the Bankruptcy Rules effected by the Interim Bankruptcy Rules. You know exactly what text has changed and what text has stayed the same.

The pre-Reform Act version of the Bankruptcy Code will still apply to most cases commenced prior to the effective date of the Act (October 17, 2005). This black line edition shows the old and new code and thus eliminates the need to carry around 2 versions of the code..

Handy paperback size of 8� x 5� inches easily fits in briefcase or purse. 400 pages.
