October H2H: LoPucki v. Baird
Thanks to Glenn Reynolds and Cass Sunstein for their contributions to our September edition of the Head to Head debate -- we hope discussion on the very interesting issues they raised will continue on these pages.
On Monday, we'll begin the October H2H. Lynn LoPucki, the Security Pacific Bank Professor of Law at UCLA Law School and current visitor at Washington University Law, will discuss his recent paper Bankruptcy Fire Sales with our Douglas Baird. This promises to be a lively consideration of key fundamental questions in bankruptcy. In this paper co-authored with Joseph Doherty of UCLA Law, Lynn challenges some recent influential work on bankruptcy (in particular, Douglas’s 2002 paper with 1985 Chicago Law grad and now-University of Southern California Dean Bob Rasmussen). Read the paper over the weekend and show up Monday ready to talk.
