Welcome to Professor Lipson

posted by John Pottow

Credit Slips readers are in for a treat this week.  Our guest blogger will be Prof. Jonathan C. Lipson, yet another bankruptcy law expert.  Unlike many academics who purport to have expertise in the field of bankruptcy, Prof. Lipson (on faculty at Temple but currently visiting at Penn) actually practiced law before he entered the academy.  It would be difficult to sum up his current research focus; he has such catholic interests as "constitutional exceptionalism" of bankruptcy law, ecclesiastical bankruptcies, executive compensation, and (one of my favorites) the role of the examiner in Chapter 11.  He also writes good stuff on Article 9 and other commercial law to boot.  Enjoy!

  • 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.
