Professor Nancy Rapoport Quoted in Marketplace

Nancy B. Rapoport is the Gordon Silver Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On Aug. 22, she was quoted in the Marketplace article In Detroit, bankruptcy comes with a cost.

"I'll call up the professional and say, 'Tell me why you made this choice?' Sometimes it's a great choice. Sometimes we talk about a reduction in (bankruptcy) fees. If reasonable fees aren't being charged then something is wrong with the system," she said in the article.

Professor Rapoport's specialties are bankruptcy ethics, ethics in governance, and the depiction of lawyers in popular culture.
