Professor Jeffrey Stempel Quoted in Nerd Wallet Finance Article

Jeffrey Stempel is the Doris S. and Theodore B. Lee Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

Professor Stempel was quoted in a Nov. 17 article by Nerd Wallet titled, “Is Credit-Based Insurance Scoring Fair?” Nerd Wallet is an online resource offering data-driven tools and impartial information to help consumers make solid decisions about money.

The article, the third in a three-part series, examines the effectiveness of checking credit information to measure people’s insurance risk. In offering his insight into whether the practice is fair, Professor Stempel stated, “I think the opinion is that there might be better ways to do it, but it’s not a huge problem in terms of fairness.”

Professor Stempel has numerous publications to his credit, including books, treatise chapters and supplements, and law review articles. He is a 1981 graduate of Yale Law School, where he was an editor of the Yale Law Journal and co-founder of the Yale Law and Policy Review.
