Professor Kadens on bankruptcy history at Duke University

Whilst further comments about Britain becoming a bankruptcy brothel get reported in the press, I can report that one of our bankruptcy bloggers, Professor Emily Kadens, University of Texas at Austin School of Law, has given a talk at Duke University on the history of bankruptcy. The talk can be seen here. The title of the talk was "The Last Bankrupt Hanged: Capital Punishment for Bankruptcy in 18th Century England".

"This lecture frames the history of the Anglo-American bankruptcy tradition as a search for solutions to the basic problem: how to obtain the assistance of the debtor in his financial dismantling. Sponsored by the Law & History Society, the Duke Law Journal, the Business Law Society, and the Women Law Students Association."
