Bankruptcy Bill, the Cartoon

posted by Bob Lawless

For those of you who have not found it, take a peak at Bankruptcy Bill, a comic strip by Gideon Kendall and Steven Horowitz. Five strips have appeared so far. You'll have to click through to read them. I won't post any of them here because I don't want to be forced to proofread every Excel file that has been filed in the Lehman bankruptcy (the bottom of this post explains). I especially recommend Bankruptcy Bill's bankruptcy haiku page, which builds on a literary tradition from the contract-law focused Raintree County Memorial Library Occasional Paper Series. By the way, thanks to Bankruptcy Bill for the shout out to Credit Slips on its blog roll.

(For the uninitiated, the Raintree County Memorial Library Occasional Paper Series can be found at the following citations: Douglass G. Boshkoff, Selected Poems on the Law of Contracts, Raintree County Memorial Library Occasional Paper No. 1, 66 N.Y.U. L. Rev. 1533 (1991); Douglass G. Boshkoff, More Selected Poems on the Law of Contracts, Raintree County Memorial Library Occasional Paper No. 2, 91 Nw. U.L. Rev. 295 (1996); and Douglass G. Boshkoff, Constructive Haiku and the Law of Contracts: Raintree County Memorial Library Occasional Paper No. 3, 39 Ariz. St. L.J. 135 (2007).)

  • 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.
