Eight Years and Counting

posted by Bob Lawless

Number 8Today marks the eighth anniversary of the launch of Credit Slips. That means we have been around long enough to get tenure at most universities. Now, if we only can get through the review letters.

One thing that I have learned from administering the blog is that its path is never linear. We have had a lot of comings and goings over the eight years, and I certainly can't predict what the next year will bring. Our goal will remain the same of trying to provide occasionally insightful commentary on topics in the credit, finance, and bankruptcy space that is of interest to opinion leaders in law, policy, and the media.

The comments on the blog continue to offer some of the best conversations on the Internet. The expertise and civility of the discussions prove that there are still places in this world where reasonable people can discuss different points of view without screaming at each other. 

Thank you to our bloggers, commenters, and readers for continuing to give Credit Slips whatever little bit of success it has.

Happy anniversary! And congratulations to you and your colleagues on this great work.

Bankr-L

  • 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.
