With deep-dive analysis of the laws pertaining to specific practice areas or jurisdictions, Matthew Bender® legal treatises are written by the most trusted names in their fields and provide problem-solving insight. And because they are updated on average three times a year, you can be confident that their coverage is up to date with the most recent cases, statutes and emerging issues.

LexisNexis publishes official statutes, administrative codes, registers or case law in 29 jurisdictions. Our case law and primary law product line is further enhanced with Official Reports, Administrative Codes, Court Rules, Desktop Codes, Colorbooks and the United States Code Service.
Forms and Automated Forms
Matthew Bender editors along with our expert authors maintain our collection of forms to help ensure accuracy when changes occur with new legislation and case law. Automated Forms help expedite the time it would take to create forms from scratch, and help ensure that they are completed correctly.
Newsletters and LexisNexis®Emerging Issues Analysis
Practice area—focused newsletters by Mealey Publications™ provide current awareness and insight into significant areas of litigation and legal issues. These are complemented by Emerging Issues Analysis articles written by authoritative experts in their respective fields.
As a leading bankruptcy treatise and lower courts recognize, “[b]ecause chapter 12 was modeled on chapter 13, and because so many of the provisions are identical, chapter 13 cases construing provisions corresponding to chapter 12 provisions may be relied on as authority in chapter 12 cases.” 8 Collier ¶1200.01, at 1200-10; In re Lopez, 372 B.R. 40, 45, n. 13 (Bkrtcy. App. Panel CA9 2007); Justice v. Valley Nat. Bank, 849 F.2d 1078, 1083 (CA8 1988). We agree.
