Today’s five-star site: American Bankruptcy Institute

The American Bankruptcy Institute, an organization of more than 7,500 insolvency professionals — including bankruptcy judges, attorneys, trustees, accountants and others — has long claimed that its Web site is “the premier site for bankruptcy information on the Web.” Over the years, its claim has continued to hold true. The site features a wealth of bankruptcy information, including breaking news in the field, updated daily; bankruptcy statistics; legislative news; and articles from its weekly newsletter, Cracking the Code, and its periodical, ABI Journal. It also includes full text bankruptcy decisions, fully searchable and sorted by selected Circuits or by state. A library section contains analyses of significant cases written by ABI members. Some sections of the site are restricted to ABI members, but the bulk of the resources are free to anyone.
