Welcome to Guest Blogger Jim Hawkins

posted by Katie Porter

Credit Slips is pleased to welcome Jim Hawkins as our guest blogger for the upcoming two weeks. Jim is an Assistant Professor at the University of Houston Law Center, where he teaches contracts and consumer protection. His recent scholarship focuses on fringe banking, including payday loans and rent-to-own transactions, and on health care finance. He has two forthcoming papers on financing arrangements in the fertility market. Much of Jim's research draws on interviews with industry professionals, offering their insider view on the structure and nature of credit transactions. We look forward to his posts!

  • 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.
