Welcome to Guest Bloggers McCoy & Engel

posted by Katie Porter

Credit Slips is delighted to welcome Professor Patricia McCoy and Professor Kathleen Engel as guest bloggers for the week of December 10-16. We appreciate their willingness to share their expertise on mortgage lending and housing law with Credit Slips readers.

Patricia McCoy is the George J. and Helen M. England Professor of Law at the University of Connecticut. Prior to becoming a professor, she was a partner at Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw in Washington D.C., where she specialized in complex securities, banking and commercial litigation. From 2002 to 2004, McCoy served on the Consumer Advisory Council of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, where she chaired the Council's Consumer Credit Committee.

Kathleen Engel is an Associate Professor at Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. She was formerly an associate at Burnham & Hines in Boston, where she litigated civil rights and housing discrimination cases. Engel has spoken several times at Federal Reserve Bank conferences and in other fora on housing and lending laws.

McCoy and Engel are frequent co-authors on predatory lending and mortgage markets. Their scholarship examines the law and economics of these topics, focusing on the intersection of market failures and consumer protection concerns. Their work has attracted the attention of policymakers and should be on your Christmas vacation reading list if you aren't familiar with it. Their most recent work focuses on Wall Street's role in financing predatory lending.
