Bankruptcy Research Library

The St. John's Bankruptcy Research Library is a project of the St. John's University School of Law and the American Bankruptcy Institute Law Review. Inside, you will find an assortment of research memoranda on discrete issues in bankruptcy law.  Our inaugural volume was published in November 2009.  A new volume is published each year in July.

Publication in the St. John's Bankruptcy Research Library is the culmination of an annual writing project on bankruptcy law conceived for the Staff Members of the American Bankruptcy Institute Law Review.  The research project consists of two component parts: a case blog and research memorandum.  In the fall, ABI staffers are assigned a recent bankruptcy decision upon which they write a case research blog, available at  Once completed, staffers continue their research to develop the research memoranda published within the Library.

We are always on the lookout for new topics and cases, and we invite your participation.  If you have any suggestions, please e-mail our Librarian at [email protected].

Enjoy the library.
