About the author:
David Gray Carlson is Professor of Law at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. He is the author of a treatise on secured credit in bankruptcy and of over sixty law review articles on various aspects of bankruptcy and debtor-creditor law. Five of these articles concern the effect of the 2005 Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act, which revolutionized the law of consumer bankruptcies. He has taught a basic bankruptcy course for 25 years, before concluding that consumer bankruptcies had become such a sub-specialty that it is better taught in a course separate from the basic course. Besides teaching at Cardozo Law School, Carlson has taught at George Washington University Law School, University of Miami Law School, University of Michigan Law School and Washington & Lee School of Law.
