Welcoming Barry Scholnick

posted by Bob Lawless

At the Boulder Conference of Consumer Financial Decision Making, Professor Barry Scholnick of the University of Alberta presented some fantastic research about the influence of neighbors on the decision to file bankruptcy. Scholnick's findings with Canadian data parallel similar, albeit older, findings in the United States.

Fortunately, Scholnick has kindly agreed to be a guest blogger for a while here on Credit Slips as a guest blogger. It is always great to have someone who can offer perspectives from outside the United States or from outside the legal academy. As a Canadian economist, Scholnick is giving us "two for one," and we have therefore decided to double our unusual honorarium. Welcome, Barry, to Credit Slips.

  • 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).

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.
