Bankruptcy law is federal statutory law contained in Title 11 of the US Code. Congress passed the Bankruptcy Code under its Constitutional grant of authority to “establish… uniform laws on the subject of Bankruptcy throughout the United States.” See U.S. Const. Art.1, Sec. 8. States may not regulate bankruptcy; but, they may pass laws that govern other aspects of the debtor-creditor relationship. (From Cornell Law School, LII)
