Professor Nancy Rapoport Quoted in Bloomberg Law

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

On May 29, she was quoted in the Bloomberg Law article PWC RAISES ‘EQUAL FAULT’ DEFENSE IN MF GLOBAL SUIT: BANKRUPTCY.

The article, about PricewaterhouseCoopers pointing to "an old English legal principle" reads, "The doctrine 'keeps trustees from undoing wrongdoing they had no part in committing and thus hurts recoveries for unsecured creditors.'"

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