I would like to welcome Professor Pamela Foohey as a blogger to this site! I am so very pleased to have her on board, to share her insights and research. Professor Foohey teaches at Indiana University Maurer School of Law in Bloomington, Indiana, where her research centers on bankruptcy, commercial law, and consumer law. She has become a pioneer in her empirical studies of bankruptcy and related parts of the legal system, combining quantitative and qualitative, interview-based research. Her work in business bankruptcy focuses on non-profit entities, with a particular emphasis on how churches and other religious organizations use bankruptcy. The results of this research have been featured in media outlets such as the New York Times, Bloomberg, CBS News Moneywatch, and Reveal. Professor Foohey also is a co-investigator on the Consumer Bankruptcy Project, a long-term research project studying persons who file bankruptcy which has been the leading empirical study of consumer bankruptcy for the past 35 years.
Welcome to Professor Foohey!
