Thank you to Tara Twomey

posted by Katie Porter

CreditSlips thanks Tara Twomey for her insightful posts this week. She highlighted a number of cutting-edge issues in consumer bankruptcy and mortgage lending from her unique perspective as both an academic and an advocate. Tara has years of experience as a clinical instructor and is currently an adjunct at Stanford Law School, where she teaches Community Economic Development. She is also a practicing lawyer, currently directing the Amicus Project for the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys. The list of recent and pending NACBA briefs provides a nice overview of hot issues for consumer practitioners after BAPCPA. After reading Tara's posts, I'm looking forward to catching up with her in person at the Federal Reserve's conference on Financing Community Development which will be held in Washington D.C. this week.

  • As a public service, the University of Illinois College of Law operates Bankr-L, an e-mail list on which bankruptcy professionals can exchange information. Bankr-L is administered by one of the Credit Slips bloggers, Professor Robert M. Lawless of the University of Illinois. Although Bankr-L is a free service, membership is limited only to persons with a professional connection to the bankruptcy field (e.g., lawyer, accountant, academic, judge). To request a subscription on Bankr-L, click here to visit the page for the list and then click on the link for "Subscribe." After completing the information there, please also send an e-mail to Professor Lawless (rlawless@illinois.edu) with a short description of your professional connection to bankruptcy. A link to a URL with a professional bio or other identifying information would be great.
