LexisNexis Launches New Sixteenth Edition of Collier on Bankruptcy

Written and edited by leading scholars and practitioners, Collier on Bankruptcy is the preeminent treatise in the bankruptcy field. Long recognized as the most authoritative and comprehensive single source of bankruptcy law information, Collier is an indispensable resource for any firm with a substantial bankruptcy practice. Cited in hundreds of opinions each year, Collier is a benchmark authority. If a firm practices bankruptcy, it has likely become an increasingly important part of its business. And in this climate, no one can afford not to have the absolutely best bankruptcy resources. That’s the reason why Collier is being extensively revised at this time – so that the bankruptcy community will have access to the latest thinking on the most important issues.

Beginning with the September 2009 release, LexisNexis commenced publication of a new edition of Collier on Bankruptcy. The Sixteenth Edition will be completed in phases over a three-year period, with volume-for-volume swaps occurring in most of the upcoming releases. The September 2009 release contains replacement volumes 1 and 2. The December 2009 release will contain replacement volumes 4 and 7. Through 2011, the complete set of Collier will consist of both Sixteenth Edition and Fifteenth Edition Revised volumes. As each new volume is issued,  existing subscribers will be able to archive the corresponding Fifteenth Edition Revised volume. As appropriate, the Fifteenth Edition Revised volumes will continue to be updated until they are superseded by the Sixteenth Edition.
 
Until the completion of the Sixteenth Edition, Collier will consist of both Sixteenth Edition and Fifteenth Edition Revised volumes. As appropriate, the Fifteenth Edition Revised volumes will continue to be updated until they are individually superseded by the Sixteenth Edition.
 
Because the new edition will, like its predecessor, follow the structure of the Bankruptcy Code and Bankruptcy Rules, the coverage and organization of the publication in transition will remain seamless. There will be one index, and volume numbers will always be sequential.
 
Each Collier chapter is written by a bankruptcy specialist uniquely qualified to write on the topic covered, and carefully reviewed by our Editors-in-Chief and members of the Board of Editors, representing some of the nation’s leading practitioners, jurists and professors.
 
We look forward to the publication of the Sixteenth Edition as a continuation of that tradition and as a statement of our commitment to provide the bankruptcy community with the most authoritative analysis on the subject.
