Welcome to David Lander

posted by Bob Lawless

On behalf of all the regular contributors to Credit Slips, I wanted to welcome David Lander of St. Louis's Thompson Coburn as a guest blogger. Lander's work gives him a vantage point we don't often have on the blog. As a partner in Thompson Coburn, he represents some of the nation's largest and most well-known corporations. Lander teaches as an adjunct professor of law at St. Louis University, is chairman of the Foundation for Credit Education, and holds leadership positions in national professional organizations devoted to both business and consumer credit issues.

I've known David almost since I first became a law professor, way back .... well, let's just say for both our sakes, a few years ago. He is a thoughtful, careful practitioner of law and is a tremendous resource for many of us in the legal academy. It's a real honor and great to have him with us for a few days.

  • 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.
