Fellowships for Consumer Debt Book

posted by Katie Porter

Just a brief announcement for our academic audience (law or non-law) that I am directing the University of Iowa's Obermann Summer Seminar in 2009. Up to 6 fellowships of $2250 (plus an award of $1250 to cover travel, housing, per diem) are available for participating scholars to participate in the seminar, which will be held June 7-14 in Iowa City, Iowa. Selected scholars will have access to the 2007 Consumer Bankruptcy Project data in advance of the seminar to prepare an empirical paper on consumer debt or bankruptcy. These papers will be collected into a volume for publication with an academic press. Interdisciplinary applications are particularly encouraged but law professors are obviously welcome. The full call for proposals and application guideines are available here. The deadline for application is Tuesday December 9, 2008.

  • 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 ([email protected]) 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.
