This unique bankruptcy time line maps the evolution of bankruptcy law from its inception in 1787 in the U.S. Constitution through 2019. It also provides statistics demonstrating the burgeoning bankruptcy caseloads, and historical snapshots of select sociopolitical events that occurred along the way.
This updated time line is forthcoming. Requests will be filled as soon as it is available.
The previous version of the time line remains available in PDF format at The Evolution of U.S. Bankruptcy Law: a time line (2012).
