I bit my tongue, since my usual sense about advance sheets and the like is that I’m horribly behind. (I’m so behind I’m talking about “advance sheets”, cases printed on paper!).
Reading my email seems to consume a disproportionate portion of the day. What advice could I possibly have about being current?
OK. If you need an answer, it’s obviously that I read.
It’s not always the cases themselves, but what other lawyers have written about them. Yeah, I’m getting my stuff second hand. Such is life, at least mine.
Try this list:
- National Consumer Bankruptcy Rights Center, NACBA’s offspring. Tara Twomey and her cohorts find the stuff that’s most important to us as bankruptcy lawyers.
- ConsiderChapter13.org I think it a real shame that most of this highly useful content, including the stuff I write for them, is behind a pay wall.
- BankruptcyLawNetwork My buds at BLN have a toe in lots of different courts, so important stuff bubbles to the surface here.
- 9th Circuit BAP opinions Insert your own BAP or Circuit Court
- ABI’s monthly publication It’s frustratingly skewed to Chapter 11, but there are consumer nuggets nonetheless. It also is a membership benefit, so there’s money involved.
I have a Lexis Nexis alert set up to point me to new means test cases, since that’s a subject I write and speak about frequently.
Beyond that, my knowledge is random.
I’m headed back to preparing for my gig next weekend with Jay Fleischman on marketing and managing a bankruptcy practice. I may be scarce here for the next week.
