Laura Coordes on Bespoke Bankruptcy

Laura Coordes, associate professor of law at Arizona State University, joins the Business Scholarship Podcast to discuss her article Bespoke Bankruptcy. This article considers instances in which debtors require bankruptcy-like protections despite not fitting within the Bankruptcy Code’s existing chapters. Coordes offers examples of how Congress addresses these scenarios through “bespoke bankruptcy” provisions, which she concludes sometimes fill important needs even as they raise new concerns about the nature of bankruptcy law.
