Thanks to Gary Neustadter

posted by Katie Porter

Credit Slips was fortunate to hear from Professor Gary Neustadter of Santa Clara Law this month on consumer credit issues.

He identified several emerging issues, including a serious weakness in  California's homestead exemption. What I enjoyed so much about his post was his analysis of not just the law, but also the credit market and how various GSE policies shape it.

His post on the delivery of consumer bankruptcy services wove together the best of the thinking on the deployment of technology in legal services, and the context-specific research on how people in financial distress. He imagines how the work of Credit Slips occasional Dalie Jimenez on paper-based self-help resources could be delivered digitally. The result would push the edges of how we think about legal practice.

We hope to have Gary back soon and appreciate his contributions!
