Sarah Woo

posted by Stephen Lubben

I am sad to report that my co-author, and recent Credit Slips guest blogger, Sarah Woo of NYU recently passed away after a long illness. She was one of the few who easily bridged the devide between banking and bankruptcy, and will be missed.


It is difficult to express how sad and unbelievable this news is. Sarah was doing important, creative, and original work that needed to be done regarding spillover effects of financial regulation into nonfinancial sectors of the economy. It is a loss for all of us that we will not have Sarah's work to help us understand how the world works.

What a tragic loss, for all of us in the bankruptcy world, but for the academy more broadly.

This is very sad. We've lost a top-flight mind.

Bankr-L is administered by one of the Credit Slips bloggers, Professor Robert M. Lawless of the University of Illinois.

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.
