UCLA-LoPucki Bankruptcy Research Database

About Downloads

The primary purpose of the Bankruptcy Research Database is to provide data for academic research.  The database is available free of charge to eligible academic users, and, for a limited time, to American Bankruptcy Institute and Turnaround Management Association members (through those organizations' websites).  The database is also available on a subscription basis to other users.

Subscription terms:

1. Price. Subscriptions are for a term of one year.  The subscription price is $795. A subscription constitutes a site licence for use at the single physical address specified.  Until January 31, 2013, members of the American Bankruptcy Institute and the Turnaround Management Association enjoy free access to the entire database.  If you are a member of either of those organizations, you already have a subscription to the Bankruptcy Research Database.  Just log in to the organization's website and download the database from there.

2. Lowest price guarantee. If we reduce the price during the year of your subscription, we will refund the difference between what you paid and the reduced price.

3. Distribution. Subscribers are entitled to an updated copy of the database once each month.  We distribute the database by email in Microsoft Excel.

4. Use limitations. Subscribers' uses are limited to those contemplated. Contemplated uses include (1) research for use in subscriber's business, (2) research to serve subscriber's clients or to promote subscriber's firm, including the publication by subscriber of tables and graphs compiled from BRD data, and (3) any other use we expressly agree to in writing.  Contemplated uses do not include resale, private redistribution, or public release of all or a substantial portion of any monthly edition.

The BRD is supported by grants from these organizations:

National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges

Turnaround Management Association

American Bankruptcy Institute
