18.104.22.168 Other NCLC Treatises
Consumer law questions on issues other than bankruptcy often arise in the context of a bankruptcy case. For example, bankruptcy clients are often the victims of debt collection abuses and may have causes of action to remedy those abuses. Similarly, creditor overcharges can often result in overstated claims. Many of these issues are covered at length in other books in the twenty-title NCLC consumer law series, including treatises on, for example, fair debt collection, fair credit reporting, foreclosures, repossessions, the cost of credit, truth in lending, access to utility service, student loans, arbitration agreements, unfair and deceptive practices, and automobile fraud.
NCLC also publishes a guide for attorneys just starting out in bankruptcy, Bankruptcy Basics: A Step-by-Step Guide for Pro Bono Attorneys, General Practitioners, and Legal Services Offices. It is intended as a companion to this treatise to assist attorneys in handling their first bankruptcy cases.
