Schedules Law and Legal Definition

In general a schedule means a list, table, catalog, or inventory of subsidiary details attached to another document.

Schedule in legal parlance means the statement of previous proceedings sent with an indictment which is returned from an inferior court in obedience to a writ of certiorari. Usually, a schedule will be attached with the answers of a court of equity, to depositions and to other documents in order to show more in detail the matter they contain. The term schedule is frequently used instead of inventory, list, outline, plan, program, roll, tabula, and timetable.

In bankruptcy law, schedule refers to a list that is submitted by a debtor either along with a petition or after filing a petition. Schedule will show a debtor's assets, liabilities, and other financial information.
